Life Update: The Beginning (at UCLA)

As many of you are probably aware, I am a first-year undergraduate student at UCLA. Although I have only been here three weeks, I already feel at home and have such a great sense of pride for my school (which I actually had way before I even was admitted!). Also, I feel like I have already done and learned so much since being here.

On top of learning a great deal in my classes already, I have become a Campus Correspondent for Her Campus UCLA, explored the surrounding Los Angeles community, attended two UCLA football games, and met some really interesting people of such diverse backgrounds. 

It's funny to look back at where I was just three weeks ago - sitting in my small hometown outside of Boston. Now I am in beautiful and sunny Los Angeles.  It's crazy how quickly things can change. When I reflect and compare my life now to my life before college, I realize how incredibly monotonous and boring it once was. Don't get me wrong, I loved my childhood but I needed change and I needed to feel a sense of independence.  I am so incredibly thrilled that I am attending UCLA, my dream school. I cannot see myself anywhere else and everyday I wake up and look forward to whatever the day will bring. U-C-L-A Fight, Fight, Fight!
