How I stay “in the know”

Hello everyone. I’m Samantha Bohnet, a junior student-athlete at Creighton University. I play volleyball and I am an arts and science student, studying Graphic and Interior Design.

JOMO >>> FOMO

Staying in the moment is one of the hardest concepts to achieve for my busy bee lifestyle. Recently I have gained a severe case of social anxiety, but I have been informed that a good trick to staying calm and not letting my brain take over is by being present. Now, this ‘trick’ may seem…
