A Frosh Perspective: The Beginning

 Angelina Truchan is a freshman at Wayne State University who plans to major in public relations. She hopes to share a bit of her year and her perspective with our Under PRessure readers. This month, she sums up her successful first semester and shares what's to come!

  If I could sum this entire year up in one word? Short. Everyone always said college will be over
before you know it and I’m starting to believe them [Editor's Note: It's true]! My first year has definitely had its ups and downs, but overall college, is not so bad.
   Honestly, the most challenging part for me this entire school year was self-motivation. I’ve come
to realize that college is about 99.9% self-motivation and if you do not obtain this characteristic, then
well, you’re screwed to put it bluntly. I have to admit I had some summer fever and my second semester was definitely the toughest. If I had to give any bit of advice to next year’s freshmen it would be to stay determined and focused on your long-term goals and do not get distracted by unnecessary things that will not benefit you in the long run.

   I’d like to thank both Elise and Jasmine for allowing me to write for “A Frosh Perspective.” It has
been an absolute delight and I hope you all enjoyed following some of the highlights of my freshman
year! Feel free to follow me on Instagram and Twitter: @angtruchan
