My full name is Kerry Renee Dunphy, otherwise known as Kdunph. My seventh-grade teacher gave me the nickname Kdunph, and for some reason, it has stuck ever since. You'll get to know me throughout this blog, but I'll try to explain who I am for you right now.
I am 24 years old, and I grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Now, I live right outside of Philly. I come from a large family of seven children. I am the sixth. My family and I are very close. I never stop posting about them. I have to see them often (every other day) because sometimes a face-time call is not enough for me.
I am a hardworking person with a dash of goofball thrown in there. Balance is vital to have, you guys! I’m an avid coffee drinker, reader of self-help and rom-com novels, a fan of watching beauty tips and tricks on YouTube and spending time with my family and friends. Finding new hobbies is fun for me. I love trying out new things. I also recently got into clothing/fashion and finding out what the current trends are. Flare jeans are back in style. Were they ever out?
I've always been very into the arts ever since I was a young girl. I was a part of the plays in grade school. One year, I played the role of a grandmother. If only I could find footage of that one. I took art classes in high school and found a love for drawing and painting too. Today, I love to travel, see new places, meet new people, sing, play the piano, draw, and paint, go to concerts, all of that artsy stuff.
I try to stay relaxed throughout the week by practicing yoga and letting some steam off at kickboxing class. Doing these things releases a lot of stress for me and helps me recover my poise. I think it's so important to find what you love to do.
Wanting to have fun is something that's in my blood. As my mom says, I used to ask my Pre-K teacher if the class was having a party every day.
Me when I was 5:
My mom always tells me that she thinks I'm a "new soul. She says it's the way I perceive the world. If I think about it today, I can see it too.
My motto? Be kind, always. You truly never know what anyone is going through. It's just the truth. Being a mean person for no reason will get you nowhere in life, trust me. I've seen it.
I can sense others' emotions around me. It is both a blessing and a curse. So, if you're around me and sad, I'm going to try to cheer you up. Sorry.
When it comes to my education, I went to grade school and high school in Philadelphia. When it came time for college, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in English from Penn State. Oh, how much fun that was.
Today, I'm in graduate school at Full Sail University, and I plan on gaining more experiences and knowledge along the way.
When it comes to my dream job, I'd love to work within the media industry. Whether it is as a reporter or host for a television station, and become an author. I'm up for trying anything!
Hopefully, you just got the gist of who I am! Thank you for hanging out with me here on Kdunph Diaries.
