Hello there! My name is De’Ja Ramil; pronounced just like déjà vu. I love sharing and absorbing knowledge through storytelling, sharing pictures & books, and watching video clips. Personal experiences shape us individually; but it’s what we choose to do with those experiences that make them worthwhile.
My website will be a source hub where young adults learn what it really means to be “adulting”:
| Financial Literacy | Health | Adulthood | Personal Branding |
Our world changes as we hit various milestones in our lives; such as, attending high school, attending college, or some other type of personal experience. Some of these milestones prepare us for the transition into adulthood; while others hinder our growth. It doesn’t matter the path you take to get to this adult phase; people will start expecting more from you – time, attention, answers. It feels like you were handed an open bag of puzzle pieces with no picture for reference and you’re not entirely sure you even have all the pieces.
“I’m not lost for I know where I am. But however, where I am may be lost.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
After receiving my BS in Accounting from the University of Nevada Reno, anxiety set in. I thought finding a position in my career field would be my biggest hurdle, but it was far from it. “Adulting” smacked me right in the face after accepting my first corporate accounting position. For instance, I needed answers related to retirement contribution, tax documents, personal conduct, etc.; all while still trying to answer questions concerning budgets, various types of insurance, social life, time management, etc.
It is not that we anticipated being a child forever, but that there is so much unspoken about the transition to adulthood it feels unsettling.
Looking back on the past few years, I have noticed my own transformation into adulthood. External influences can dictate how that transformation evolves, but a person’s internal influences can help as well.
I want to make a difference and help influence a young adult’s transformation into adulthood in a positive way by sharing useful information.
