I have always known, and been told, that events within my life will change me. I will become a changed person. The word that I chose, as a first year, was ambiguous; I thought that was who I was, who I wanted to be. Events, that by chance happened that next day, would forever change me. I realized that I wanted people to understand, know, and remember me for who I am. I didn't want to be in the background anymore. I am still evolving and continuously being shaped by decisions, friends, family, and events that I have and will experience. Change is a vital aspect of life and to be successful you have to know how to "roll with the punches". How to adapt. How to change. But also realize how that experience has change-d you.
