My name is Blake Murphy and I am a recent graduate of Northwestern University. I am a daughter, sister, friend, dancer, runner, traveler, and lover of the world. At the age of twenty-two, I am bartending at a restaurant in Evanston, a suburb just outside of Chicago, IL, living at home in order to save money for travel, and living not for tomorrow but for today. Over the next year, I will by traveling to South America, applying to law school, and pushing myself mentally, emotionally, physically, and psychologically.
As my dad says quite often, “There is no dress rehearsal in life Blake. You got one go, so make it everything and more.”
