This has been one of the best academic years of my life. Despite the struggle of balancing everything I’m involved in, I wouldn’t give up those opportunities for anything. I’ve met so many people this year, and become close to so many people I never thought I’d ever have a connection with. I’ve put all my cards on the table: good and bad. I’ve realized who I can count on, who will always have my back and who can always make me smile. This has been an intense year of growing, and with some-teen weeks left in this semester, I will definitely walk away from my junior year of college with a head full of memories I’ll always cherish.
