Why You Should Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Hey Boost Friend!

What have you done recently to improve yourself? Are you able to get out of your comfort zone to help you grow or get closer to your goals? Did you learn a new skill? Or maybe you finally completed that task you’ve been postponing?

As for us here at SUPERCHARGED®, this summer, we worked with a number of interns who stepped outside their comfort zone to improve themselves. Ariana Gilmore was one of them.

By getting out of her comfort zone, she was able to increase her personal values and get a better sense of how much more she is worth.

Ariana Gilmore is a junior media production major at Alabama A&M University. She is a natural-born performer and loves to direct multiple forms of media, including live and film.

She was one of our summer interns at the Music Production & Marketing department. Here is her take on the experience.
