Matthew Clemons mini essay

My name is Matthew Clemons and I am a Florida native. This is my third term back at Florida SouthWestern since taking a longer than expected break. I am big into health, wellness, and fitness. I have a part time job as a CrossFit Coach and personal trainer. I believe in mental health and physical health as going hand in hand. A healthy mind drives a healthy body is my motto. My main free time activities include working out, trying new food, and spending time with my dog. I have been in Fort Myers for about five years and it is about time for me to move on to my next location and experience new things.

I currently work full-time as a bar tender in a restaurant and love the company, but not the job. I am in a position to get promoted without my degree, but I have learned from my past that there is nothing wrong with having a backup plan. I plan to be there another two years or just until the end of college. They have been faithful and fair to me and I will do the same for them. I am there for the managerial experience that I will get and then I will take it and go further with the company upon degree completion.

In my future, upon immediate completion of my degree, I plan to be in a corporate office. I have been with Darden and will continue through my career. I have had meetings and informal interviews as well as offers pending my further education. I am focused after my break from school and can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
