I'm happily addicted to Chinese food and starbucks; and you can catch me binge-watching Dexter on Netflix almost daily. 

I wasn't always a Netflix-watcher, I actually used to read over 10 books each week. Since I got older, so did my commitments and I haven't been reading as much - but I'd like to get back into it!

Anyway, I've always thought of myself as an extroverted introvert. I mostly keep to myself, but when you get to know me I can be pretty loud and out there.

I’m Ariel. Student. Blogger. Christian. Future Doctor.


I realized I could use my passion for writing to help my peers discover their purpose & live more intentionally.

why did I start this blog?

I graduated high school at 16. I say that not to brag, but to give you an idea of where I'm coming from. I first went to community college and I thought I would be miserable, but then I joined Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

 I became involved in nearly everything on campus and found my passion for leadership. When I eventually graduated, I went to Stony Brook University and found it was much more difficult to be involved. I noticed many of my peers there and at my prior college lacked intention when it came to school. They didn't know what they wanted to do and were taking courses that made them miserable. I wanted to help.

So I started this blog to write about personal growth and mindset. as well as self care to help my peers grow themselves and find what they're passionate about. I even started a weekly email with motivational tips to fuel my subscribers throughout the week.

I'm here to help you make your dreams a reality.

I want you to know that you are deserving of living a life by design. With intentional goal setting and determining your values, you can create a plan to help yourself in your life, relationships, career, and more.

You don't have to be anything like me to make the most out of this blog. You could be outgoing or a complete introvert. You could be a college student or a recent grad. The point is - this blog isn't just about me, simply inspired by me.

As I said earlier, my heart behind this was to help YOU. So please reach out if you ever have any questions or comments. I'm so happy for you and I hope you decide to join this community by subscribing to my blog and becoming friends on social media.

I'm a Starbucks lover, fizz dealer, master chef, creative baker, worship leader, dog mama, crisis counselor, cheese connoisseur, and passionate writer.

I've never been one to limit myself to a single title. I'm more than a female, a student, a blogger. And I bet you're many things too.

When I was a junior in college, I noticed people around me weren't motivated. They didn't have goals - going through the motions day after day. And I wanted to help.
