Pushing the Limits
One thing that has taught me discipline and gave me confidence is definitely running. I ran track and cross country in high school. The 3,000 meter and 5,000 meter were my favorites because the last lap always gave me so much adrenaline. You learn to test your limits and truly dig deeper to get those fast times.
For Future Students
“I don’t want you to think like me, I just want you to think” - Frida Kahlo
If you’re unsure about selecting a major, no worries, I was also in your shoes and many other students have been too. That’s why you came here in the first place. Take a variety of classes, ask questions to advisors, join clubs, get to know at least one professor, go to campus events, apply for study abroad programs, internships, and research opportunities. With some extra effort you can find the major you’re passionate about.
Learn to say no. You will encounter many amazing opportunities, but don’t overwhelm yourself. Take a step back and don’t commit to more things than you can handle.
P.S. You’re here for a reason, so push yourself a little out of your comfort zone. College is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so get out there and shine. Whatever needs to happen will happen.
