Insight on our Frosh's Outlook

Lover of Disney films and classic over achiever, our resident Freshman, and Elise's mini-me, Catia, will be chronicling her journey this year in a little series we like to call A Frosh Outlook. 

I’m a people person. I mean, I’m not super outgoing but I do like people. As far as what to do with the rest of my life, I felt as if this was an important quality to take into account when deciding. Choosing to go into public relations for me was a relatively easy choice. It seemed like an industry that my personality and talents would be well suited for. As a freshman, however, I don’t fully understand what I am getting myself into and I am always plagued with a sense of insecurity and indecision in my choice of major. Granted, that could just be my tendency to overthink just about everything--but still, it’s a tricky position to be in.

Although I am green in my pursuit of PR greatness, I already like what I see, and I am pleased with how easy school has been this first quarter of college. Not easy in the sense that I have a minimal workload or that this field requires little effort, but in the sense that I am genuinely interested in what I am learning and comfortable in this area of study. At the same time, being the over achiever type I am, I remain wary of this feeling and hope that it isn’t just a honeymoon phase that comes with the hype of being a cool new college student. I find myself wondering if this should be harder and if I’m cheating myself out of a challenge but I have ultimately determined that this inner peace I’m experiencing can be attributed to a smooth transition into this whole new world. And yes, I did just reference Aladdin.
Anyway, with all of that being said, I have a positive outlook on my future in the PR world and look forward to all I will learn and experience as well as how I will mature within this industry.

Until next time, your fledgling freshman,
