College is one of those experiences that you know you’re only going to live once in your life and therefore you should try to make the most out of it. This is why, when I was of age to start searching for my future college, I decided I wanted to make sure that the college that I chose had everything I was looking for.
For the first time in my life I wanted to move somewhere a bit further away from home. Even though I knew that it would be a bit hard on me to be far from my family and to be able to finance myself, I was ready to start working on my self-confidence and do my best to achieve a better future. This is why I chose to attend my college, the Georgia State University and I have not regretted this decision not one bit.
Getting to know about college life
From my first couple weeks in college I got to understand that I needed to work on being more confident and less shy around other people. Everyone around me was making friends and hanging out with new people all the time but I was kind of not following.
Those thoughts are what made me become interested in fashion in the first place. I wanted to find a way to express myself, to feel more confident and comfortable in my own skin and to express my individuality. I started out by doing a lot of research both online and offline, going through magazines and also my friends’ closets. I came to realize how much I actually enjoyed it and what a great impact it had made on my mood and personality in such a short time after I had started paying attention to what I wore and how I combined everything.
After that, I managed to start getting to know more and more people and to become more social and get out of my shell. For the first time in my life I felt like everything was going well.
I was trying my best to be a good student as well. I knew I had a clear vision in mind of how I wanted my life to be afterwards and I can still say this hasn’t changed to this day. I am always working very hard on my grades and I want to be sure that when I graduate I have enough knowledge to help me become good in my field and competitive in the market.
A one of a kind experience
College has really been good for me. I managed to make a lot of friends, learnt how to take on responsibilities and how to work hard to achieve all the things I want. I know that it is not easy to both have a social life and maintain good grades, but I am confident that I’m doing a pretty okay job at keeping up with both.
