As a Humanities major, I really liked the variety of courses that were offered. From children's studies, media, culture, and technology, to law and literature. I never grew tired of the options offered to study. My education allowed me to gain skills that helped me achieve my career goals. I believe that through my studies I have learned to be flexible, compassionate, and focused when it comes to my work/life balance.
I'm the first woman in my family who has ever had the option to go to university, and I really wanted to do it for myself to get that "leg up" in the real world when I graduated. But more than that, I wanted to do it to make my parents proud so they knew that I respected and appreciated everything that they've done to get me to that point.
