At home, I had fallen into a routine and wasn’t ready to leave it. But when my mom and I visited the college, I was, for the first time, excited to leave everything I’d ever known. I’ve never had a hard time making “radical” decisions, but this was most certainly the wildest one. The opportunity that was available to me really sealed the deal for me, and I knew being in a completely new and unfamiliar environment would force me to get involved and become more of the person I want to be.
