BC: And my growth is just the beginning...

FC: The Personal Growth Portfolio of Kimberly Conner

1: My Early Beginnings

2: I was born on October 29, 1987 in Omaha, Nebraska, as the first of two children to Richard and Suzette Conner.

3: Exactly 17 months later, my parents had my younger sister Jennifer. From the moment of her birth we were inseparable.

4: I have always been told that I was a talkative and outgoing child that was full of life.

5: At every opportunity, my parents took Jennifer and me on road trips, instilling our appreciation for travel.

6: Once my sister was born, our family moved on average every 4 years. | We lived in Omaha, Atlanta, New Orleans, and went to High School in Pennsylvania.

7: At first, it was difficult making friends as I was one of two African Americans in my class. But eventually, I developed my core group of close friends.

8: In high school, I developed my first serious relationship with my ex-boyfriend James

9: James was from Brooklyn, NY and from a large Panamanian family | Because of our different upbringings, we struggled to relate to one another.

10: After High School, I went to college in Pittsburgh. I had to adapt being hundreds of miles away from James and my parents, as they had moved to Montana

11: To make matters harder, my sister spent the year away in Europe for study abroad. Although I loved the University of Pittsburgh, I had a difficult time fitting in and finding my place when I was missing my family. Every weekend I took a 4-hour bus back to my hometown to visit James, the closest loved one I had.

12: After a year in Montana... | my parents relocated to West Palm Beach!

13: I decided to transfer to USF to be closer to my parents, and James moved down with me to discover a new way of life.

14: Once we moved to Tampa, our relationship slowly became emotionally abusive. I ended our relationship of 3 1/2 years

15: At this time my relationship with my boyfriend had ended and my relationship with my sister was strained as her year in Europe changed her drastically. I felt very alone and depressed.

16: To make more connections I joined Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed business fraternity at USF.

17: Through AKPsi, I met Greg. We were immediately attracted to each other physically and socially. We have now been together for 6 months and he is my best friend.

18: Now that I am nearing graduation I know who I am as a person and the people who matter the most... | I better appreciate the people in my life by working on improving my communication with them.

19: Improving my communication allows me to be the best woman, daughter, sister, friend, and girlfriend I can be.
