College: Time to finally "shed my skin"

Edri Suarez

College is the greatest opportunity in the world. Where else would I be able to study what I want to study, rather than what I am made to study? Nothing sounds better to me than going to school everyday and learning about subjects and issues than I am realy interested in.


In college I intend to major in psychology and minor in music. I have chosen psychology because I am interested in studying the human mind and why people behave and act the way they do. I am interested in working with children and adolescent at risk. I am almost certain that this will be a profession I will love and feel good about. I wish to minor in music because I love music and have a need to learn more about it. If possible, I plan to combine these two areas of study in my future career. Perhaps in the field of music therapy.


The idea of being able to study exactly what I want facinates me. I am excited to know that college will give me this opportunity. I want to take advantage of my college experience to the fullest extent. During my high school years I did not participate in as many activities as I would have liked to. As I start my senior year I realize there is not much time left. I am a very shy person and this has kept me back from doing many of the things that I would like to do. I know college will offer me new ways and possibilities to get involved and become part of something. College will provide me with a chance to once and for all start to overcome my shyness. In college I will open myself to things that I really care about and try things that I did not try before. I look forward to immersing myself in new and exciting things and not taking anything for granted. I see college as a time to finally "shed my skin".
