College is what you make it. I love stimulating my mind and learning in a classroom. I learn best from the hands on experience. I started school at a community college which was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I've always wanted to grow in an unversity community and have done so just this past semester. I am so glad that I am furthering my education and bettering myself to be the best me that I can be.
