MEET SKYLAR, DREAMER AND BOLD BABE

“My name is Skylar Wright (not officially but I’m working on it lol). I’m 24 years old and I married my husband in April 2019 on our 9th Anniversary. It sounds SUPER cheesy but we’re high school sweethearts and have been together since the end of 8th grade. We live in Bear, DE and love to take road trips (we have a trip to Nashville coming up), watch movies and just hang out. We had two miscarriages in 2019 and are still praying for our rainbow baby. #mamatoangels

I’m currently on a journey to be the healthiest version of myself, both physically and mentally. I do suffer from anxiety and depression, so it’s really difficult to get through some days. Through meditation, exercise and crystals I’m finding the balance and self love I’ve always needed. 💖”

What do you do full time? What is your passion? 

I work for a local hospice (sounds super depressing, I know) in admissions and I honestly love my job. I have no college degree, no clinical background and yet I’m still able to help patients and their families find comfort in the end stages of their life.

 

How did you end up doing what you do? Did you always know you would be in that field? 

I’ve been on a path of self discovery for a really long time. I graduated high school in 2014, and was only in college for about two weeks before I dropped out. My anxiety and depression were at an all time high and the uncertainty of my life really weighed heavy on me. I’ve probably gone through 10+ jobs since I was 17 🤦🏼‍♀️ 

I applied to the job I’m at now on a whim. I was at a really low place in my life and really hated the job I was at. I was completely terrified of this career change. Never in my wildest dream did I think I would be working for a hospice. To be honest I didn’t even know much about the industry before I started with Seasons! It’s been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had and I truly see myself growing with this company for a long time. 

 

What made you apply to be a Bold Co. Girl?

I really wanted to be a part of a community that is all about empowering and supporting fellow women. While I don’t have my own business I’m trying to build, 100% commend every single person trying to create something of their own. 

 

How have you benefited from being in the group?

I can honestly admit I’m not great at making new friends (I’m introverted af) so being part of a group of ALL NEW people was terrifying for me. However, I’ve loved getting to know everyone and just connecting with new people about our passions and interests. 

What are some of your HUGE goals?

Have all the babies, build our dream house, keep climbing the ladder at Seasons, buy a fixer upper then rent it out, nothing super crazy. 😄

 

What are your biggest motivations to achieve your goals?

My husband and family, 100%. I have so many people in my corner that have my back and really push me to be the best person possible. My parents and Brandon have always supported whatever crazy idea I have and I can’t be more thankful. 

 

How do you stay motivated or get inspired when you're down?

I have a few accounts on Instagram that are my go-to’s for inspiration. I also love looking up new and different quotes on Pinterest to life me up. I’ve just recently started getting into mediation and that’s been super helpful too. 

 

Who are your top 5 favorite boss gals?

@chickaartistica ; @kassimansfield ; @choosingchelsea , my director, Abby & @theboldcogirl 😉

 

You are definitely BOLD! What advice would you give young/other aspiring BOLD gals? 

BE YOURSELF. And be proud of it! 

I’ve struggled with my self confidence my entire life, and I still struggle everyday. I’m super tall, I’m plus size, I have a weird sense of humor, my favorite music and movies aren’t always what’s on trend or typical - but this is me. I went too long with trying to change myself to be what I thought was “perfect”. I’ve let that go and just focus on becoming the best version of MYSELF. Best decision ever 🙌🏻
