A Little more about me
When I started college I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Well it turns out I wanted to do a lot of things. It was hard to narrow it down to just one major which is why I finally came to the interdisciplinary major. It allowed me to excel in many areas. I have learned how to think critically and solve problems that I otherwise would not be able too. I have also learned how to use many different areas and how they can come together. I want to use these skills to better my career and in my everyday life.
