Hey guys! Welcome back! It took a long time for me to get where I am. I am not perfect by any means, but I have definitely improved. So I thought I would impart my wisdom and share my story with you all.

I have always been shy. My whole childhood was spent being that strange girl in the back that never said anything. Of course, I still struggle with being introverted, but I’m not nearly as shy anymore. I can carry out conversations with new people and I can talk in front of groups of people without much struggle. It wasn’t always easy and the transition was a fight, but I did it. It all started when I started college. There is something oddly comforting about being in a place where almost everyone is in the same situation you are in. Making friends is pretty easy once you find your place. Once you make friends, get a job and/or join a club, things just start falling into place. At least that’s how it worked for me. I got over being shy for the most part. I’m not the most open person, but I’m getting there. I found that I really love college and it’s many opportunities.

Everyone is selfish in some way or another. It’s not easy to overcome that. I still have a very selfish nature. And I think it’s a good thing. But I also learned how amazing being generous is. It makes me eternally happy to give to others and to help where I can. Being selfish kind of took a fall during my early years. As a child, there were some very selfish people in my life. I began taking after them, but then soon realized that is not the kind of person I want to be, nor is it the kind of life I would want to live.

I am seriously awkward. And I don’t think that is something I will ever overcome. However, I have learned how to acknowledge and embrace my pure awkwardness. My personality gets in my way quite a bit, but I’ve learned how to manage. This is another thing that college gave me. Being a college student showed me that most people in college are awkward and everyone is pretty understanding.

College has helped me get over being shy, selfish, and seriously awkward. I have accepted so much more about myself. I’m excited to see what else happens and how far I go from here.
