My first year at college has taught me a lot about who I am as a person and what I need in order to succeed. Starting off the year I did not have the skills that I needed in order to properly manage my time wisely. This was reflected from me struggling in my classes and not thinking that I was doing well. However, as the year progressed I began to learn from my mistakes and became better at managing my time. In addition to this, the past year has taught me that I no longer have a passion for the sciences like I used to. I always saw myself as someone who would go into a science field, however, after taking multiple sciences classes I learned that is not what I want to do anymore. My freshman year has taught me that I want to do something that is related to business. My first year at The Ohio State University has changed me as a person, but it was for the better. I was very happy with the friends that I made and the ways I learned from my mistakes to help me do better in my classes. Lastly, this first year has taught me that college goes by very quickly and you need to make the most of it and manage your time wisely so you do not have to feel that you wasted what you were given.
My second year at college has allowed me to continue my development as a college student and adult. I was able to transfer successfully into the Fisher College of Business as I no longer pursue the medical route. As I did not initially have the GPA to transfer I took the first semester to raise my GPA to make sure that I can get into the Marketing major. This allowed me to get myself on the appropriate academic path where I can be most successful. Instead of having to just take general education classes I can now take the business core requirement classes. Additionally, during my second year, I learned a lot about myself such as I have a passion for art. However, not only do I enjoy art I have also learned that I enjoy the topic of economics and even want to have economics as a minor. Furthermore, during this year I have learned that I may also have a passion for business analytics and may have a double minor. This year has allowed me to grow as a college student as I learned my interests but also helped me as an adult as I have better practiced my time management skills.
