I came to Roger Williams University undecided with really no idea what direction I should go in. I tried a bunch of classes that were suggested for me by my academic advisor. I finally decided that I was going to major in Sociology and Anthropology because both these topics were extremely interesting to me. I dove into these classes without really thinking of what I wanted to do with the degree when I graduate. After looking into jobs in the anthropology and sociology field, I decided to reconsider my decision. I remember speaking with my roommate who was majoring in Public Relations and suggested that I might like to try communications. After taking two communications classes, I knew this was going to be an area that I loved. I like to try new things, but it was a relief to be able to settle down into the communications major. I enjoy trying new things and communications was one area of study that I tried that really stuck with me and that I could see myself going into.
Many of my friends have told me that I can often times be indecisive about big and small decisions. I love that the communications major is very open and has many directions that I could potentially go in. I am a very creative person and I love to work with others to develop new ideas, concepts and projects. The theme for my reflection is communicating with others and trying new things. Both of these topics have really feuded my college experience and led me to where I am today. By pushing myself outside my comfort zone I have allowed myself to learn more and open myself up to new opportunities. My college journey will lead me to be able to be successful throughout the rest of my life. I believe these two themes of communications and being open to trying new things are two traits that everyone should posses and use throughout their lives.
