About A Girl
Stacy started her career in television working for ABC7, in Los Angeles.
With a passion for writing and creating entertaining content, Stacy began her journey as an entertainment intern for On the Red Carpet, a nationally syndicated television show.
"I remember as a kid, I wanted to be a journalist. I thought the women on television looked so put together and smart and that’s what I wanted to be."
As an intern, Stacy didn't make very much money so she began working full time at the Chanel makeup counter.
"Working for Chanel was a great experience in many ways. It allowed me to be creative, it taught me the importance of connecting with people, and it taught me that presentation was a key element for any job."
Once her internship ended at ABC7, she was recommended for a position as a News Assistant for the news department.
"Working for the news department was difficult. The demands were tough. My commute from Orange County to Los Angeles went from two days out of the week to five days. The schedule was at random, and the producers had a higher level of expectation for news shows that were produced daily. I was working for the #1 station in Los Angeles, and accuracy was not only a demand, it was a requirement. There were times where I wanted to give up, but wouldn't let myself. I knew in my heart, every step I took was leading me closer to my career path.”
After working at the station, I had hit a plateau in my career. I was confused about the next step I should take in my career. I decided to ask my friends about their career goals and what I realized is that many girls my age face the same dilemma, “Where do I go from here?”
I decided to create “Workit-Girl” to help girls answer this burning question. Whether you are just starting your career, mid-way into your career, or looking for a career change- I hope this site motivates you to dream big and know that you can accomplish anything you are willing to work for.
One lesson I have learned along my path is that no one can tell you how to live or what decisions to make that will get you to your true calling. Ultimately, you have a calling that is unique to your own life. It will never look exactly like anyone else's path. However, the more information you have, the better the decisions you can make for your journey.
Never be afraid to seek advice from others, work hard, and look good while doing it! That is the definition of Work it!
