To be quite honest with myself, I really am not sure why I’m so intrigued to apply and be part of the honors program at DePaul University. I’m an undergraduate who’s feeling so anxious but yet so terrified of being in college and not in high school. Just like any other undergraduate I want to fit in and have a lenient 4-year college experience. But that’s not enough for me because I’m extremely aware of my capacity not just as an individual but also as a student. I’m someone who enjoys the thrill of being challenged, why? Because when someone has so much on their plate and there’s a huge amount of pressure surrounding them, they build up this horrific energy to have success in anything they put their minds to.

It will give me that extra push to motivate me to study harder each night to get that perfect score. My abilities and aspirations will speak volume if I’m given the opportunity to participate in the program. I want my success to speak for itself, I want to be recognized by my own ability.

Another reason why I’m so drawn to being part of the honors program is because I know that I’m capable of anything. I’ve learned throughout the years, I’m my biggest enemy. If I don’t take this opportunity to apply to the honors program that just means that I don’t believe in my capacity and that I’m not so smart to be part of it. Of course, I am nowhere near to being a genius, math is not my greatest subject but because I am aware of that I try every single day to become better at
