"Our experiences shape us into the type of person we become; make every decision count."
My internship experience through the psychology department's counseling track really opened my eyes to important issues like trauma and relationship violence, and created a passion for working in both prevention/outreach and counseling/intervention.
Completing two thesis projects within two separate colleges. It was a tremendous amount of work, but the experience was well worth it. I learned a lot, not only about the two subjects I was studying, but also about myself.
Don't be afraid to pursue something that's beyond your comfort zone. You'll learn something you otherwise couldn't, regardless of whether the outcome matches our expectation. Our experiences shape us into the type of person we become; make every decision count.
