Final Thoughts as Graduation Approaches

posted by LIM College

I can’t believe this is my last blog entry EVER! I really am almost at a loss for words because I have been writing this blog since I was a freshman. Now I am a soon-to-be graduate and I have no idea where the time went. It makes me emotional to think about how much I have changed throughout my four years at LIM College.

As a freshman, I was incredibly shy and also felt like somewhat of a misfit at LIM. My classmates seemed so fashionable and outgoing and I was just a jeans and t-shirt girl who liked to be alone. I definitely spent the majority of freshman year feeling intimidated and out of place.

However, through the years at LIM, I really found my place. Through my internships and classes, I discovered that I actually really enjoyed learning and that I had a head for business. I discovered my true passion, which is marketing. I learned how to speak up and how to stand out in a crowd. I learned how to write a convincing marketing plan and make an awesome presentation. I learned how to write an impressive resume and how to dazzle potential employers with my skills and personality. I could go on and on for pages about all of the things that I learned throughout my college years.

Although I learned a lot about the business world, I think the most valuable thing I am taking away from my experience at LIM College is what I learned about myself. I am so different than the intimidated, lost, and shy girl from freshman year. Now I'm so confident in my skills and in myself that as I prepare for graduation, I really feel like I am going to be able to accomplish anything I desire.

I know this is a super-cheesy sentiment, but I honestly do feel this way. But even though I feel this way, I still do feel a little freaked about having to become a full-time adult in June!
