It is hard to believe that I am half done with my undergrad, it sure has been an adventure! This year I transferred to Wayne State University for my second year of school. Little did I know, it would be one of the best decisions of my life. From the very beginning of the year, I just felt so much optimism and joy.
I started the year by going through formal recruitment. I proudly joined Kappa Delta and gained 60+ sisters that I couldn’t be more grateful for. Having this amazing support system to push me to do my best has been a huge part of my successful year. I have thrown myself into my sorority and current hold 7 positions: including leadership chair, a SET leader, and a recruitment day head for fall formal recruitment. I truly can’t imagine what life was like before Tuesdays laughing my butt off with my bestfriends for hours.
This school year, I held three part time jobs. College, greek life, and a shopping addiction is expensive people! My after school teacher job has taught me so much. Although sometimes my kids drive me totally insane, I love having them in my life. They bring so much joy and happiness into my life. I have learned a ton about dealing with difficult children, how to plan taking chaos into consideration, and to mend hurt feelings. I have also been working at Sugar Kids Spa, we provide pampering birthday parties for young girls. It is so fun and really brightens my day to get to spoil little princesses every weekend.
Academically, second semester was my best semester ever! I took five classes, three being for my major. It was a difficult semester but I proudly finished the semester with a 3.73! A year ago, I would’ve never thought I had that in me! My GPA is now exactly where I want it to be. I can’t wait to go back to school in the fall and do even better. Wayne State has challenged me; however, I have learned so tremendously much. I also just got the news that I received a $1,000 through the College of Education (YAY).
Overall, I just feel so blessed. I couldn’t be more thankful for the support and encouragement I have received over the last year. Now it is time for summer to start and attend MYLead as a Facilities Director and my last conference as a CA. With summer classes, working, and trying to fit some fun in, this summer should be great!
