With my graduation date in less than a month, I think it is the perfect time to implement this college series on how to basically kick ass in college. Truth be told, school might be the thing I am best at (is that sad??). I plan to write on the following topics:
- How I finished college so fast
- How I won so many scholarships
- Why I actually DON’T suggest pursuing a master’s degree
- And my top general advice for college
Though I don’t think college is necessary to have a successful career, I am constantly reminded by my immigrant parents that it is an extreme blessing that many people wish they could have. There are a lot of important crossroads in college and you’ll have to make a lot of important decisions. I am really passionate about this topic and have lots to share about my college experience in what I hope will help you through this significant journey.
I have dabbled in a wide range of academic areas (from undergraduate, to graduate, to faculty, to research) and can provide insight on what I enjoyed/regretted. And though I don’t have the stereotypical college experience (i.e. moving away to a glamorous university and dorming on campus, already aware of what I want to be), I lived what is the reality for most college students: going to a local cheaper university to save on costs, simultaneously working part/full time, and not having a clue on what I wanted to really do.
Come back every Sunday for my college tips and secrets!
