I recently graduated from university, and I wanted share my thoughts around that with you all!
University is a long journey. Starting out on day 1, you have no idea the incredible experiences you’re about to have, and the amazing amount of work that will be required of you. All that you know is that this is the next step in your life.
University is about so much more than just being at school. You learn things about yourself while in university, and you develop from a teenager into an adult. These are extremely important years, and it’s important for you to realize that you’re not just learning how be a teacher,or doctor, or engineer; you’re learning how to be a contributing member of society.
My university career was far from perfect, and I definitely hit a few bumps along the way. But it’s always difficult to appreciate the highs in life if you haven’t experienced a few lows along the way, and the same is true of my experience in university. In the end hard work and perseverance paid off for me though, and I’m so proud of my accomplishments.
So whether it’s your first day at Uni or your last, always remember to be more concerned about who you’re becoming than what you’re doing. You will do many different things while in university, and those things will come and go, but who you become can last a lifetime.
So get out there and show the world what you’re made of! Hard work will always pay off, and strong character will always see you through. I can tell you from experience that the long days and late nights all seem like they’re worth it when they call out your name and hand you your degree.
I’d love to hear about your university experiences in the comment section below!
