In 2016, I proudly graduated from UC Santa Barbara (only the greatest institution on earth, a totally unbiased opinion of course.) It was an experience unlike any other and a risk that payed off more than I could have ever imagined. I took a chance leaving home, burying myself in student debt and going into an unknown. The rewards I reaped are priceless and you will see the memories and faces of my lifelong UCSB friends on this blog regularly.The greatest lesson I learned from my time there is that life is what you make of it and success will not come to you. You must be willing to go outside your comfort zone and take chances because more often than not they will pay off. If there’s something you’ve been thinking of doing, GO DO IT!
