Hello my name is S. I’m a 22 year old senior who is oh so excited to graduate. I’m Mexican and have grown up in a small town in North East Kansas. I loved having the small community experience growing up. Everyone is friendly and a lot more relaxed it seems. I feel that what makes me me, is what makes a lot of the people in my generation them as well. People are finally starting to challenge themselves to be different and have different mind views. I became a Bod because I didn’t want to leave too far away from my family while still getting a good education. My life has been shaped greatly from being an immigrant. I was always a bit different than others around me and have never embraced it as much as now. I try to always soak in all the crazy magic life throws at us and take happiness from anywhere possible. I believe happiness is a born right, it’s just we’re the ones in charge for channeling it. I’ve never really had a horrible experience at Washburn. I think the best experience/class I’ve taken is Leadership 200, the Farley Visiting Professor Dr. Carter was great. He had a lot of great life advice and content to share. And honestly thinking it through if I could go back in time, I would still choose Washburn.
