In addition, my blog includes advice, ideas, and personal stories I believe to be helpful in living a fulfilled life.
Who am I?
Hello! I’m Mia Goros. I’m 23. I’m dedicated to guiding other millennials to do work and live a life they are fired up about and truly love. To read more about me, keep reading.
I can say, I’ve been driven most of my life.
Though from 13 to 17, I had moderate to severe acne and felt so ugly and worthless. I literally didn’t want to be seen by anyone (and practically wasn’t) in those 5 years, even though I wanted to do and be more.
A dream I had was to pursue a career in the music industry.
And I felt like I had the courage to do so once my acne cleared up toward the end of high school.
Once I graduated high school, I decided to move to Los Angeles (from my hometown of San Diego) to create a “new successful life”. Little did I know, I had A LOT to learn.
Falling down (kinda literally) in college
To put it simply – the first year of college was the hardest time in my life.
I found myself alone in my dorm room as I had trouble making genuine friendships.
On top of it, I was undeclared and taking classes I had very little interest in taking.
Here I thought I was going to have this amazing new life, and follow my music dream but fell back into feeling depressed and worthless.
(This was taken back home after being in college for one week – I may look happy, but was faking it.)
In fact, one night I found myself in a hospital…
I practically almost died from alcohol poisoning after drinking a lot of vodka.
That night scared the crap out of me! I was utterly embarrassed and honestly scared of myself.
Following that night and many nights after, I decided to take steps to pursue my dream and live a life worth living.
Getting back up and trying again
One big step I took (6 months later) was to intern at a radio station. It was a fun and challenging work experience, but I ultimately learned that the music industry wasn’treally for me.
I also learned that I didn’t want to be sitting at a desk 9 to 5 every day doing work that didn’t interest me.
At the time, I wasn’t quite sure what that meant for me professionally so decided to give college a chance.
After taking a Political Science course, Communications course, and Religion course – I knew I wanted to take more!
Fortunately, my university allowed students (I believe 8 at the time) to customize their major.
After much time and paperwork, I decided to study those three subjects and declare my degree as, “Socio-Political Relations and Culture”. This degree allowed me to study in-depth the beliefs, systems, institutions, and communication styles that run our world.
(Genuinely happy graduating with my unique degree)
Would this degree get me a steady career or job – and one I wanted? Maybe. I wasn’t sure. I really didn’t think about it.
I was just having so much fun learning.
I also was beginning to realize how I wanted to build and create something myself after graduation and knew I didn’t exactly need my degree.
But I knew I had to figure out what that really meant and entailed.
Flash forward to junior year, I joined my university’s debate team.
Flash forward to my senior year, I became VP of Events for a millennial entrepreneur organization, SoGal.
I placed 3rd in a local debate tournament and planned an all-day YouTube conference.
From these two experiences, I learned about myself and what I’m capable of – like never before. I learned how rewarding it is to get out of your comfort zone and do work that excites you!
Around this time, I also was introduced to the world of spirituality and self-development.
The book, “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle was the first book that opened the doors for me.
I also read and learned from teachers like Louise Hay, Marie Forleo, Jim Rohn, Kris Carr, Dale Carnegie, Tony Robbins, and Oprah.
One message they each teach (or least represent) is just how important it is to figure out what your belief is for yourself and your life, and to go pursue it.
Where I’m now
I’m graduated and saying no to the dull redundant life, and yes to an exciting and a fulfilled life.
And for me, that means running this site and creating a community of people who want to do and be more in life. 😊
And I’m learning with you.
