College Experience Program
Yesterday, some CEP friends and I did a video to let new freshman and their parents know how the College Experience Program works; how it teaches us and how to spread awareness. I was one of the freshmen getting interviewed, I hope I did great. My roommate, Lauren did amazing (as always). We both have funny personalities. My other friends did awesome too!
I feel I am catching up to my two amazing sisters because I am in college and have a boyfriend too! I am finally feeling normal. I am taking a public speaking class which I really enjoy. I am taking that class so that my fears of speaking in front of people will go away and I am learning to be more confident. I have grown so much since this past August. I have great support from the teachers here. They are honest and that is important to me. I also have great friends here that make me smile.
I am also taking a class called community involvement. In that class they teach us how to be social and how to get out of our comfort zone, outside of my apartment. I wish my high school had classes like these, teaching us not to be so awkward. I feel like my dream is coming true. I would probably be at my parent’s house, not being social and sitting in my room. I was so happy on my first day walking around campus at St. Rose. I finally did it and came to college!!!
At my program, we learned self defense in case something were to happen while walking alone. I had no idea that someone would want to hurt me. They taught us to be aware of our surroundings and how to defend ourselves in case of any dangerous situations. That class was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. By the time class ended, I was exhausted.
Want to know what else is a fun and interesting class? Community service. Lately, we have been talking about what it would be like to be homeless. We are taking a trip to volunteer to help them; I always want to help people, so I enjoy that class very much. Next week, we are planning on taking a field trip! I will keep you all posted!
