As the semester wraps up with finals this week, I’m looking back at the growth and change that has happened in my life this semester. I came into college nervous and scared about how it was going to be but now I’m confident in myself. When I came in August I had no confidence in myself and I didn’t know if I was going to be able to do it. I was the first person in my family to go to college so I didn’t have anyone to look at for guidance that was one of the main reasons I was so scared to start this journey. Even though my siblings or parents had not gone to college they were still there for support and that has really helped me this semester. One of the things I have noticed in myself is the growth that has happened to me I have grown to be independent and not rely on my parents or siblings for help, rather it’s for school or life just in general I have learned to take control of my problems and life. I am so excited to continue my college experience at OU and I hope to evolve more and enjoy my time here while it last.
