I’m the kind of person that likes to ramble on in my writing at times; I feel like sometimes it’s just hard to get everything I want to say condensed down to a short paragraph, let alone a single sentence. I always feel like I have so much to say, but never enough space to do it. So trying to figure out a single sentence that describes who I am as a person is understandably a bit of a difficult task for me.
I guess before I can figure out what my sentence is, I have to understand who I am as a person, and how I am who I am today. I came to Creighton as a Pre-Med student, fully set on the idea of studying Psychology so I could one day work my way up to becoming a Psychiatrist. Despite not having any particularly real interests in science or medicine, this idea of becoming a doctor stuck with me from high school until freshman year of college. Of course that quickly changed a semester into my college career, where I did a complete 180 and switched from Pre-Med to Graphic Design. I realized that graphic design was something that I was actually passionate about and really enjoyed doing, so I decided to explore that major more. It was then that I realized that I enjoyed the JMC department in it’s entirety, and found an additional passion for photography/videography.
Given my sudden change of heart when attending college, I believe that anyone can easily find what they’re passionate about, given that they can find the right experiences. It took one trip to the US/Mexico border for me to find what I was passionate about, but I still wonder if there are other things for me out there that I have yet to uncover that I have a passion for. So for that reason, I believe my sentence would be something along the lines of:
“He is passionate about his work and hobbies, and continues to search for interests in the hopes of discovering most passions.”
