How I Chose a Major and my Advice to Students
Choosing your major is honestly one of the most difficult decisions you will make in your lifetime, and you must know that you are never alone. When I first started college I had no idea what I was going to do but I felt like everyone else had their goals pretty set to go. Even though I was drawn towards Psychology, I just majored in Biology so I could go to into Neuropharmacology. I did enjoy learning about drugs and the brain and plus my parents really wanted me to be a doctor but then my third year I realized I was doing this because of the money and not because it was my passion. I immediately changed my major to Psychology because it was that one-degree that I absolutely loved. Yes, I won’t make as much money as my degree before and of course my parents were disappointed at first but at the end it was my decision. I have learned through life that you should do what you love and love what you do. That is the only way you will internally be happy and successful. I still don’t know 100% what I will do in my career but what I do know is I will be graduating with some valuable knowledge and hope to utilize it in some way in the future. My advice to students is just do what you love.
