When I stepped onto campus nearly five years ago as a freshman, I never dreamed that my journey would lead me HERE! I once thought that simply getting a Bachelor's degree would be "Reaching for the STARS! After I quickly realized that goal, I found myself not knowing what I really wanted out of this whole college thing. I knew my undergraduate degree would get me several places and help me secure a decent paying job. OnE PrObLeM: A degree in English=cubicle=boring. I feel I am too much of an extrovert and creative thinker to be crammed in a box all day. From studying for my minor in communication, I realized what I really enjoyed was Public Relations. Thus, I developed a new plan: go to grad school and get a Master's degree that would get me to were I want to be professionally.
This is where my second set of goals come into play: do something great, do the unexpected, take on a challenge. As a first generation college student, I see the value of a great education. Having an education will allow me to do things my parents were unable to do, and I know that makes them proud as well. I have never done anything on the small scale, I try to over achieve, have big asperations, and take on everything I can to get me where I want to be. Though sometimes this lands me in major FrEakOut mode, I am proud of my accomplishments and have learned many valuable lessons doing things on my own.
With this random and brief backgound in mind, I now come to the question: Where do I want all of this to take me five years from now? Sometimes I think your guess is as good as mine :) However, for right now, my goal is to make it out of Grad school alive and get a PR job where I can really show off my skills. I want to be challenged, have fun, and be a asset to whatever staff I join. I think if I can accomplish these goals after two more years of hard work, I will be pleased!
