  • Jocella

    Major: Pre-Nursing
    Hobbies: Going out into nature, making wire jewelry, volleyball, and spending time with those I love
    Advice for students: Learn to rest, not to quit. Being a first year student can become overwhelming, but know that it's okay to take a step back and rest instead of overworking yourself. Taking a break can help you recollect yourself and really reflect on what you need to get done.

    Advice for students: "Feed yourselves to the wolves!" New Experiences can feel nerve racking and/or scary, but that is why we must go out and try. They bring growth and new opportunities into our lives. Wolf=new experience, feed yourself= go out and try.
