Feeling out of place, Interest in fine arts
When born into a life of moving a broadened mind is nearly a birthright. Early on, I realized the giftings of transition, appreciating deeply the world around me being one. This adventurous life has weaved eras, connected disparate places and grown a heart that sees immeasurable beauty in the most divergent of places: empty buildings become caverns of stories, brick roads provide historic echoes of a "once upon a time" gone by and careening waves sing sweet songs of serenity. ...

Get to know your teachers!! There are teachers that you love and some that you hate, so obviously go with the ones you love (no brainer). Teachers only want you to succeed, so find the ones that have always been there for you.

Why I ultimately chose my school
267 Words
Go on tours. I cannot stress that enough. You need to see if you can see yourself at the university before you make a decision. Sure, they have a great program, but are you going to be happy there? When I was younger, we lived in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, which is where Wake Forest University is. If you haven't seen it, it's like it is out of a dream. It is the picturesque college campus. It's what I wanted for...
