Blythe San Agustin
I was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL (Go Jags)! Growing up in a city where everyone knows everyone, I felt safe in my bubble. It took a lot for me to move out of that city (even though I didn’t go too far). I moved to Ft. Lauderdale, FL for college which was a huge culture shock for me. I absolutely love it, though, and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The people I have met and the opportunities I have been given have shaped me into who I am today.
I was able to further pursue my passion for optometry while being in south Florida as I found so many jobs, internships, and research opportunities. My dreams really became a reality!
Outside of optometry, I really enjoy reading and learning about interior design. Before I discovered my passion for optometry, I originally wanted to pursue a career in event planning/interior design! I love organizing and cleaning to create a space that’s welcoming to be in. I am also a huge food lover and am willing to try absolutely anything! I love all sorts of spices, flavors, and cultures so it’s fun to connect to those around me through food. I love spending time with my mom, too. She has been my rock through so many ups and downs and we have shared so many important moments together. I am so lucky to have her in my life!
I am grateful to have been given so many eye-opening opportunities and to get to experience and enjoy the little things this world had to offer. The life I am blessed to live has taught me so much already and I cannot wait to continue on and learn more about myself and those around me!
