Alright, so to a lot of people getting into the University of Michigan’s Dearborn campus isn’t that big of a deal….but it really is to me. I’ve been told since middle school that college probably won’t be my thing, a counselor made us take some career test in 7th grade…..7TH GRADE, and it said I should be a vending machine attendant. That’s a pretty shitty thing to be told when you are 13, and I honestly believed them for a while. I was just some punk kid throughout high school and I barely graduated on time, I managed to squeeze out of high school with a 2.0 and a 20 on my ACT. No one thought I would be going to college at all, and if you would have told me then that I would be going to the University of Michigan I would have thought you were joking. UofM is honestly my dream school, it’s where I’ve wanted to go since I was little kid when I went to football games at the big house with my dad. I don’t give a damn that it’s the Dearborn campus, I’m still a wolverine.
Don’t give up on things you want to do, don’t listen to people when they say you can’t do something, prove everyone wrong. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you aren’t cut out for something because you can honestly do anything you want in this world. I’m so excited to get my teaching degree from this school and spread this message to every classroom I have the chance to be in.
