I never expected to leave so soon. It was the leadership role I wanted. The team’s work ethic amazed me and they felt like family within a matter of weeks.

As soon as 2018 began, things didn’t feel right. My boyfriend and I rang in the new year with one of our biggest arguments yet. I felt uncomfortable around my closest friends.
