My transition back into college life as a graduate student has been an equally fun, rewarding, and challenging experience. To switch back into a world of homework and constant assignments was something I looked forward to for several years – but, of course, now that I’m here I think I must’ve been crazy to take this plunge! Lucky for me, I live in an area that provides many beautiful places for relaxation and reflection, like the river pictured above. And, despite the fact that my life has become a whirlwind, it is a whirlwind of things I love.
I find this sentiment echoing in our articles this month: Our contributors discuss the theme of resilience and overcoming the challenges of pursuing a career that you are passionate about. They also consider the certification process, facing new life changes, and finding footing in leadership positions. Hopefully you can relate to these thoughts and these words resonate with you!
How have you enjoyed the VOICE these past few months? Is there something you’d like to see more or less of? Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We love hearing from you.
I hope you are all finding the joy in the chaos of your day-to-day lives!
