I recently took a road trip with a couple of my friends where we saw about 11 different Universities to get started on our college applications process. Among these included the Ivy Leagues and several others like New York University and The University of Chicago. I was impressed by every college that we visited and would love to go to any one of them. The reason that I am talking about this trip is because seeing all of these colleges, all of which are very prestigious and have extremely low admissions rates, inspired me to dream big as I navigate through the college admissions process. I still have lots of research to do before I start applying, but having a dream is the first step of many and I can’t wait to get started on this journey!
I want to encourage everyone to dream big, no matter what. That is the first step. No matter how lofty it may seem, it is the first step in propelling you to achievement.
