Throughout my time here at ULM, I have discovered that I have many great skills to offer in the real world. ULM has helped me develop each and every one of them. I was chosen to become a Peer Leader and a PREP Staff member. While those duties were a big responsibility, I saw how those activities increased my people skills and my time management abilities. I knew I'd made the right choice by attending ULM. Having such a supportive and positive staff pushes you to achieve any goal you have set.
Being involved on campus at ULM has enriched my college experience, opened doors for me, and allowed me to make so many friends and connections. ULM truly is my home away from home, and I love helping others realize ULM is awesome!
I have discovered that I am an independent person at ULM, and that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. Being involved with PREP staff and Hawkseekers taught me skills I will use for the rest of my life. I have developed better public speaking skills, and I have learned how to manage my time. I think both are important aspects of being a leader. Being a leader has taught me to value everything ULM has to offer because being on the other side of the university shows me how great it truly is! I have made lifelong friendships while attending ULM! The first way I made lifelong friendships was through my sorority Kappa Delta. When I made PREP staff I was the happiest freshman on this campus! Through these two organizations I have met some people who have changed my life significantly! I understand that I have to work hard for what I want because then I truly deserve it! ULM has given me the opportunity to become a person that I never was in high school, which is why I love it so much! Now I actually enjoy going to classes because I am studying subjects I truly care about!
ULM has helped me discover my genuine passion for the medical field and for helping others. ULM helped me realize how much I enjoy getting involved with the community and my peers. This university has also helped me discover how important it is to meet and surround myself with great friends who are passionate about excelling in education, careers, friendships, networking, and life in general.
