How did you choose your major? Minor?: 

I see myself as a very people oriented individual and when I first started my academic journey I thought of myself as a business major, I quickly came to the realization that although business majors interact with people daily, it wasn't in the manner that I wanted to study or area I wanted to work in.

For myself it a abou keeping true to may values and exploring potential options.
