Have you ever wished you could go back in time and give your younger self some advice?
The number one question people ask me is, “How do you do it?”
I always laugh at this question because the answer is that it is definitely not easy! Being a nursing student, a Division I swimmer, and having a college social life does not always seem like it could be possible, but it can be—I live it daily! I experience both the stress and the victories that come from this combination.
For the first 18 years of your life you have lived at home. A place where you may have had a couple siblings. Maybe you maybe you had your own room and bathroom. Maybe you had lots of rules and chores. Whatever it looked like, you called it home and you were probably pretty comfortable there. It’s what you know and have known for all of your life.

1. People don’t give kisses to each other as a greeting
My very first moment when I first landed in the States was really embarrassing. What I would normally do if I meet someone is giving two kisses on both sides of the cheek. So my future teammate came and picked me up at the baggage claim at the airport, and the awkward moment happened.

I decided that I would attend GWU.
At first, I was hesitant to make this college decision. However, once I verbally committed to my decision I felt very at peace. Anyway, let’s fast-forward through my four years. I’ve since graduated and upon graduation, I spent a fair amount of time reflecting on my education.
Was GWU worth it? Academically? Socially? Spiritually? These questions are nearly impossible to quantify.
