Thank you, UofSC, for teaching me the importance of having a support network. I never learned how to ask for help in high school because I never needed to. When I began to get overwhelmed with classes sophomore year, I kept it mostly to myself. Eventually, I started reaching out to my advisors, family and friends for support. My junior year, I went to a professor’s office hours for the first time. Soon, I was talking to all of my professors regularly, sometimes on a weekly basis. Not only did this ease my anxiety, but it helped me gain a deeper understanding in many of my courses. It drastically turned my college experience around and will definitely be an important skill moving forward. 

Future plans: Sarah will graduate in December and plans to take a gap year to gain experience in her field and then attend graduate school to earn a master’s degree in anthropology.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
