    Growing up, I always envisioned college to be a terrifying experience; I would be away from home for what I thought would be forever, surrounded by unfriendly strangers, and struggling to keep up with my professors as they discuss subjects meant for only experts in a field. Now that I have one semester of college under my belt, I wish I could tell my past self to stop expecting the worst.

At first I just did a lot of research, I scarred my fourteen year-old self with more traumatizing videos about human trafficking, gritted my teeth as I read horrific stories, and swelled with determination as I wrote down statistics. Next came the unfruitful self-righteous phase where I judged everyone around me for not caring about ending slavery as much as I did.
