I came into Drexel University with a passion for dancing and the motivation to pursue a career in law. I tried out for an Indian dance team called Drexel Dandiya, which led to the beginning of a memorable experience.
This is something I encourage every student in college to find, a place you can call home
My freshman year, I learned to balance my time between dance practices and taking 20 credits a term. As I managed to make my way through the first season, I became a more positive and fun, loving person being with all the great people surrounding me. We were more than friends; we were family. My team was my rock through my hard times, and we always had each other to fall back on. This is something I encourage every student in college to find, a place you can call home. The following year, I ran for captain and won. It had been a pleasure to be a leader, have these wonderful dancers look at me as a role model, and travel and share the stage with such loving people. I was able to learn from each member of the team as well. Dancing was my escape, the people were my friends, and competing and putting all our efforts out on stage was an unforgettable experience. I molded my personality over time by becoming more patient, understanding, and open minded.
My junior year, I still spent time with the new team and I will continue to do so. These friendships do last a lifetime and they hold a very special spot in my heart. I am thankful for this opportunity that was given to me. To have people to share my talents with and to have people who supported me in my education as well.
