I am so happy that you are here to join me on my adventure at the University of Iowa! Throughout this page, and my time at Iowa, you will see me grow and change into the woman I hope to become after college. I will be bringing you along on my experience at Iowa, giving you pieces of advice and so much more! You will be able to view all of this on two platforms, this blog site as well as my YouTube channel, Heather Lynn (videos related to college will be linked in blog posts).
Since you are going to be with me for a while, I thought I should give you some information about myself! I am a freshman, about to begin my second semester and I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to go to this school. Throughout the next three-and-a-half years, I will be studying Business Analytics with a double minor in Sports Management and Spanish (hopefully I will be able to study abroad in Spain because that would be amazing).
Growing up, there were many aspects of life that I truly fell in love with. I can’t remember a time when music wasn’t part of my life. As a little girl I grew up with classic rock music, especially Van Halen, but as I got older I fell in love with country music as it encouraged me to become a songwriter. I have always enjoyed sports, especially Chicago Blackhawks hockey…it’s tough growing up in the Chicagoland area and not loving the Hawks. I surprisingly fell in love with golf my sophomore year of high school. The game gave me a new appreciation for the outdoors, helped me trust myself, and gave me friendships for a lifetime. Traveling with my family has always been very close to my heart. I have loved every trip I have been on, but my favorites were traveling with my dad’s side of the family every year.
I am looking for ways to continue these passions while at school but have found some new and enjoyable hobbies while being on campus. I wanted to become more physically active so I decided to join the club CHAARG which was one of the best decisions I have made! Another big part of my life now is YouTube. I very much enjoy helping others, so to create something that will bring joy to others’ lives fills my heart with so much joy.
I am so extremely thankful for you coming along on my journey with me! Have a beautiful rest of your day :)
