Biggest Challenge

Being able to step out of my comfort zone when I was a freshman here at IU was very challenging for me because I am an introvert and I was extremely shy to get to know others. Over time, I overcame that feel because I was always surrounded by people and that environment made it a bit easier to talk to others.

Lessons Learned
