Question #1: What possible majors are you considering--and why? I am hopefully going to be a creative writing major. Writing in general has always been a passion of mine and it's also something that I consider myself to be quite good at. In a nutshell, writing give me happiness.
Question #2: What, aside from your major, are your interests and abilities? All through high school, I was heavily involved in the drama department. Whether I was working backstage or actually acting, the theater was my home away from home. I also have an interest for psychology. I think that the power that the brain posseses is one of the most fascinating things in the world. I cannt wait to study it further.
Question #3: College is about change, including how we ourselves will change and grow over the course of four years. How do you see yourself changing during your time at college? I've always been a pretty shy and introverted girl. One of the reasons that I chose Roanoke for my school was that I wouldn't know a single person and that way it would force me to be social and outgoing. So far, it's been working well and I've already made a few friends. My hope is that come my senior year, I will have overcome my shyness to the point where I can go up and strike up a conversation with anyone and not be held back my insecurities.
Question #4: Given how big of a step college is, it's very natural--indeed, some would say healthy--to have some uncertainties, some questions, some anxieties. That in mind, what are some of the questions that you have as you begin college? Be honest here: what are the worries--large and small--that keep you awake in the middle of the night?Where do you think these uncertainties come from? Are they good or bad? Can they be used to your advantage in any way? I think that a little part of me (a little part of anyone, really) is afriand that no matter how hard I try, I won't succeed here. I had to work very hard and fight tooth and nail to have the opportunity to go here and to fail out would be nothing short of devestating. Although, there is a positive side to this fear. I believe that it will cause me to work harder and more diligently to make sure that failing out won;t even be a possibility... At least I hope so.
