Changing My Career + Leaving Law School at 23 | Honest Vlog

This is an honest vlog about why I’m changing my career path and leaving law school at age 23… I realize this is a long video, but it was not a topic I wanted to skim over or make seem like no big deal. The decision to change my career path and leave law school have weighed heavily on my life for the past two years.

I’m honestly sharing how I arrived at the decision and how I’m feeling today. I hope this can be a reminder for anyone who needs it that there is more to life than feeling miserable and trapped in the day-to-day. It is never to late to make necessary, difficult changes to improve yourself and your life.

So… there it is.

I’m no longer a law student. It feels good to finally get that out in the open but it definitely wasn’t easy to share. I debated even making a dedicated video to this topic because it was so personal and a decision that goes against what is ‘good’ or ‘right’ by conventional standards. But, I decided that such a big change was worth of a dedicated post because it is a big deal. And I’m proud of my decision.

I aim to be as honest as possible. In my real life, with myself, and on the internet. I hope this video and post can be a reminder to trust yourself and trust your gut in pursuit of what you know is right and wrong for your life and for your future. I never ever imagined that my journey to and from law school would end like this. But what is meant to me, will be.

I am so grateful for all your support and positive feedback on this video. It truly means so much to me! As I continue to blog, make YouTube videos, and run my Etsy shop full time, your support means the world to me and I love hearing from you.

I hope you are doing well! If you are struggling like I was, I hope you can find a path to improve yourself and make your dreams and your joy a priority.

All my love and blessings!
