Seven months ago, I set out on a journey that pulled me halfway across the country to Saint Louis University. To say that this adventure was always easy would be lying. Change is difficult. Moving away from family is hard. Continuously discovering and rediscovering who you are and who you want to be takes a lot of work! When we stop and really think about it though, what is all of that work for?

I feel as though many work through life trying to be something. I cannot tell you how many times either I have asked another person or have been asked myself: “What do you want to do? What do you want to be? What is your plan?”
