My first and third years of college were quiet the learning opportunity for me. At the end of both years, I lost thousands of dollars worth of scholarships and was placed on academic probation. These years were the most difficult years of my academic careers. I had made my first D in my second semester of my freshman year and my first F and additional D’s during my transfer year. It was and still is extremely hard to overcome the grades and the emotional distress I felt during these times. At age 25, I am still retaking courses that I did poorly in during those transitions years. In the video below, I share with you what I learned during my first year of college and my experiences as a transfer student.
