When I stepped into my first night of Top Dog, I was very nervous. I felt like I was an outsider because I had just changed my major. My entire Monday had consisted of meeting nothing but new people. I did not recognize anyone in class. As I sat there and listened to the introduction that the firm director gave, I became very overwhelmed. However, I don’t think that was a negative thing. Being overwhelmed the first night was something that drove me to find my passion. I knew without passion, I would not succeed. That first night changed my perspective on my capabilities.
As the first semester came to an end and the second one began, it really opened my eyes to how much I had improved. I finally felt as if I was doing something that utilized my skills and helped someone in need. Whether that is a client wanting to start up something completely new based on their own passions, or a client needing help within their organization, I could help. I am very excited for new opportunities that will arise as time goes on.
This applied course Is the right one for me because it really opened my eyes to new opportunities that I did not know I had. This course has given me new tools to utilize and new experiences that will forever leave an impact on me. I know that I will be able to take all the things I have learned and apply it to a job once I graduate. Not only do I think it has been beneficial to my future job, but I think I will be able to help someone with a great cause. I want to work for someone who needs my passions to further their own organization. These are all things I have realized because of choosing Top Dog as my preferred applied course.
