Year in Review

I am more than pleased with my first year at The Ohio State University. Though it has not been easy, I have truly grown as a scholar. The year’s academic challenges have tested more than just my knowledge. I have had to find study strategies that work for my new classes, get used to living with a changing schedule, and get past numerous learning obstacles. Thanks to the university’s several resources on campus, I have developed as more of an independent student!

In addition, I am looking forward to getting more involved in campus life as my time continues at Ohio State. There are so many teams, clubs, and organizations that look interesting and fun to me and as I’ve gone through the majority of my first year here, I know what my goals are for the fall. I can’t wait to put myself out there.

I am ready to tackle autumn 2020. See you next year OSU!

Artifact- Walk to End Alzheimer’s

I recently had the opportunity to volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association at the Akron Rubber Ducks stadium in Akron, OH. I helped put on a walk to support both awareness for Alzheimer’s and the friends and families of those who are suffering from the disease. We wrote inspirational quotes and sayings all along the two-mile route to encourage the people who came to show their appreciation and support. I’m so grateful that I had the chance to learn more about Alzheimer’s as well as do my part to spread the message of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Artifact: ASP

One of most valuable experiences I’ve ever had was getting the chance to go down to Southern Ohio for a week as a part of Appalachian Service Project. I had the opportunity to work on multiple farms and learn more about the production of several goods that reach the homes of so many people all over the country. I was also able to spend a day working with Meals on Wheels, an organization that provides warm meals daily to people who have trouble leaving their homes. This picture shows my crew for one of our days of service. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to share my love of service with other students. I look forward to having many other volunteering experiences in the future!
