I just had my first wave of exams and I actually felt pretty good about them! The past month has been pretty challenging but I really am proud of all the effort I have put in to keep myself afloat. Ashley has been my biggest supporter and I give a lot of credit to her for helping me with accepting myself and being the best person I can be. All the counseling and support that I have received have really made a ton of difference, and the antidepressants also have been a helpful boost. I also am absolutely loving the introductory mining engineering class I am taking. Dr. Kohler is an incredible professor and I am so glad that he convinced me to choose MNG as my new major.
