As I am writing this, I realized that in less than a week I will be finished with my first year of college. It’s crazy how scared and excited I was to begin this journey and I finally finished the first chapter. When reflecting on this year I think about all the ups and downs, trials and triumphs and I realized just how much I have grown as a whole. I can proudly say that I am not the girl I walked in here as, and I love this new me. College has tested me in every facet of my life and has shown my vulnerability, insecurities, and faults. But above it all I have truly flourished. I am confident in the resilient, kind, beautiful woman that stares in my reflection. I have met people and made memories that I will never forget. This is only the beginning.
Cheers to looking forward!
