Ever felt like everyone keeps asking you what you want to do in life or what your major is? Yet you still feel like you don’t have the answers to those questions because you still trying to figure it out yourself. Well, you are not alone in this battle. I felt the same way a couple years ago.
During my senior year in high school, I knew I wanted to go to college but I was still undecided on what I wanted to study because I didn’t want to jump into a major that I will regret later. I knew I wanted to be in a field where I can help others. Like any cautious student, I decided to focus on my general education classes until I figured out what’s right for me. During my sophomore year, my adviser encouraged me to take Intro to Anthropology. This class changed my whole perspective but I had to double check if it was the right major. I decided to take Medical Anthropology. This class tackled issues that are very dear to me. It focused on issues faced
by third world countries; from there I knew this major was the right one for me. That same week, I declared Anthropology as my major. I hope my story encourages you and shows that you are not alone. You will soon figure out what major is right for you.
