Below is a quote from June 30, 2013:

“Applied to the public relations program at Oswego State and got in.  Next step of my life in which I start in less than two months.  You may ask, how do you go from engineering to PR? Well, I love to write but I also want to change myself, in the way that I want to take the shy, no risk-taker, self-conscience teenager that I am and force myself to take a step outside my boundaries.  I want to take advantage of all that life has to offer…so my journey starts now :)”

Completely corny, I know! However, it is also a moment to look back at and admire to the fullest. It is crazy to think about how much has changed since I first wrote this. I am entering my senior year at SUNY Oswego and I have changed so much over the past couple years. Oswego has opened me up to the most amazing opportunities and I couldn’t have asked more from my experiences. It’s true – I was a very shy person. However, I have been able to push myself and grow in ways that I never thought I would. I have come a long way and still have a way to go, but I am ready for the challenge!
