College is one of the biggest journeys of my life so far, and trust me I’ve had my fair share of doubts. When the road gets bumpy, its hard not to doubt your path and think about giving it all up. You must remember, that success comes in small steps, and it comes with finding yourself. Do what you love, and do not make life choices based on what others tell you to do. At one point my mother told me that I should go to school to be a radiologist, but I always knew I needed to make strides in becoming who I want to be, a teacher.
If you’re confused on what comes next in your life, don’t worry about making some big leap of success. Pace yourself, through time and effort you’ll get to where you want to be. If you are not sure of what you want to do next, start with taking small steps. For instance, if you love to paint like me, start painting more. Whatever career you want to achieve, have a strong mindset, learn a lot, and practice what you know. Regardless of if you want to be a teacher, journalist, actor, lawyer, or nurse, take every step possible to become the best at what you want to do.
Take advantage of resources on campus, there are plenty of people at Salem State that would love to help you. For instance, there is the annual Career Fair coming up, read FYM Mikaela’s blog about it Career Fair 2017!
