- There are many reasons why I chose to go to college. Growing up, I always knew that it was expected for people to go to college. Most of us were raised that way because my parents always encouraged my brothers and I to go. Part of the reason why I’m here is to make my parents proud of me, even though they don’t fully support what I’m majoring in. It still does not matter because I am teaching myself to follow my dreams and do what I want to do and not what my parents want me to do.
- Honestly, Converse College was not my first choice. I really wanted to go Berklee College of music in Boston where my family lives because I’m in love with the city! But I soon realized how much money that was going to cost me. I than heard from Converse through a music recruiter and I decided to audition. I hated the idea that it was an all girl’s school but I immediately changed my mind during orientation and saw how amazing everyone was to me and how this school is way better than a co ed school!
- All through my life, I grew up with multiple genres of music. I used to listen to all of these mixed CD’s that my brothers had 24/7. I even took them on car rides in a CD player back in the day. So you can pretty much say that I have been in love with music since day 1. It is what gets me through the day and keeps me going with my life. It runs through my veins and it’s all over the place. We would be nothing with music! Singing is my passion and I am extremely blessed to have my voice and actually going to school for it! I can’t wait for what the future is going to bring me.
- This video was a huge reality check about college; I really did not know how much money we all really put into it. It blew my mind when he said that we are pretty much paying $1 per minute. I also loved how he was saying that you don’t have to go to school to be an engineer or anything like everybody else wants you to; you need to go to college for something that drives your passion and of course mine would be my music. I know now that I made the perfect decision to go to college for singing.
