COMM0014 – BLOG 5: The Brand of Me

Have you ever noticed that it is so easy to judge others without evening knowing them, but when you try to label yourself you are speechless? I sure hope I am not the only one that struggles with this.

Let’s try starting with personal characteristics that make me different from others. I could say shy or friendly, but I won’t. Personally, I think of myself as self-motivated, mature, and opened minded. Both on the job or with family/friends, what you see is what you get with me. I am very passionate about what I do and the excitement of reaching success further pushes me. However, I am always looking to put others best interests in front of mine, as long, as it does not disturb my path.

To stand out is an interesting concept to someone who would identify herself as shy. However, over the years I have been able to make a name for myself in the NASCAR community through Twitter. By engaging with teams, race car drivers and tracks, I have had some amazing opportunities to get involved. Now by volunteering with organizations on race weekends, top notch owners know my face.

My best trait? I am always up for a challenge. Taking on new tasks in the only way you learn, whether it is on the job or just in everyday life. 9/10 times I will be scared to death of stepping out of my comfort zone, but I never show that in my execution of tasks. Testing new waters is the only way to grow as a person, which is never an easy task. Yet, through determination and strength, I push through to become a better person.
