With the fall semester complete and spring classes starting today, how can I not be excited? How goals and dreams become reality truly astounds me: from being just another BIMS student to receiving the amazing opportunity to be a BIMS ambassador; from becoming a founding father of the Theta Chi Fraternity in the fall to be preparing for spring rush for our soon-to-be Alpha pledge class, I cannot wait; with seeing my older brother on a daily basis to him doing an internship this entire semester away (which is kinda unfortunate but really proud of him for doing) is amazing. During the winter break, I visited high schools recruiting prospective Texas A&M students, many of whom were only interested in attending that other school down the road, but soon reconsidered after hearing about the traditions and incredible life of being an Aggie, which made me very happy to hear.
All these turns in my life have been blessings and have brought the best out of me to continue pushing forward even when the going gets tough. Changes can be scary because you never really know what to expect; however, everyday I remind myself of a quote that I love so much by Winnie the Pooh, and that is “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think,” and with that I am truly grateful for all these new paths that I have come across on my journey; I can’t wait to see what else is to come in the near future.
