When I look back on the past two years of college, I can proudly say that I’ve never been happier and so thrilled with who I’ve become. Building my self-confidence has allowed me to grow into myself and most importantly, helped me learn how to love who I am.
COVID-19 stole many anticipated moments from my youth, including the beginning of my college career. Forced into virtual learning and isolation, I had to adapt, become self-disciplined, and form meaningful relationships. While the pandemic took away precious memories, it also presented opportunities for personal growth and resilience.
