I am so excited to be in this class. To be honest, at the moment I am extremely stressed out, but I know that I will make it through this. I know that as long as I keep at it, I will eventually get the hang of it; and I can only imagine what doors that will open in my mind. I am so grateful for this opportunity. College is a big deal, a big freedom that comes with a lot of responsibility. My parents always tell me so, but there is nothing like actually experiencing it. It is just that we have a lot of people watching us. Do not worry – although I know I am – we will all make it through these courses; and do quite well. I know that I am personally struggling to think quickly and participate in the discussion sessions, but day by day I am acclimatizing to the college level. I am feeling more comfortable, and my mind is expanding. Like I said, I am very excited to be in this class. Thank you ILC!
