Walking onto this campus on August 18th was a life changing moment for me personally. That nervousness of feeling the grass on the soccer pitch for the teams tryouts quickly went away as my confidence grew and by the end of the day I was happy I could make my parents proud as they couldn’t be here with me.

The first three weeks went by smoothly, the instant bond i created with not only my teammates but other athletes on campus help me a lot emotionally. The fact I went from feeling i did not have anyone the first couple of nights to knowing i had people by my side was reassuring.

Moving day was a little bittersweet for me, although I was curious about all these new people and excited to meet them I also disliked the fact I had to leave my nice dorm at Rockwell hall to move into McClelland which was not the greatest compared to where I was during preseason. As the weeks have gone by, I’ve been meeting more and more new people and enjoying myself quite a bit, having good company always makes me feel like a void is being filled and i am honestly grateful for the opportunity to have these connections.

The workload has been the downside in all of this, playing a sport and not being used to college workload is not easy and takes time to get used to all of it. Sometimes the anxiety kicks in when I look at all the papers or the assignments I have due and that can be

a struggle at times. Being alone in college and stepping out of my comfort zone has definitely been a challenge, but in life you should never let yourself get too comfortable and this is a lesson I will take with me throughout my whole life.

Now in week 8, I’m constantly working to better myself both on the field and in the classroom, Lasell is 100% the best thing that has happened to me in a very long time and i hope i can keep that same thought going forward.
