I didn't want to go to college, but my parents convinced me to try it for a year. Four years later, I’m graduating with two degrees, and I’m leaving this place as a completely different person. I’ve made countless memories that I will forever treasure and found people I consider family. I am so thankful I gave college a chance; I would’ve missed out on so much love had I not gone here.
