The end of the semester is around the corner

My first semester as a college student brought me many valuable experiences. I was able to develop my social skills since I met new friends who I believe will be part of my future successes. I am very proud to say that I was able to be part of the volleyball team from the college and representing it was an honor, for I met incredible people whom I owe a great experience in my first semester.
Being a freshman in college has given me many lessons, and I hope I will develop my goals as times goes by. I can’t wait for the next semester to come, so I can keep meeting people that will enrich my academic experience. I was able to find that it doesn’t matter where I am or what I am doing, instead, who I am with.
My classes were far from exceptional, I liked the way my teachers bonded with each of their students. These teachers are doing a magnificent work in developing this program called PUENTE. I am proud to say I am part of it and that I have gotten so much out of it. One example is the mentor they assigned me, this person has been an amazing influence in the way I see my academic development, as well as life.
I had the opportunity to explore the college in its entirely and I discovered the art classes, I am considering in probably being part of one, for they offer amazing opportunities for creativity to grow. I am so into this place that I keep looking for any opportunity I can find to be involved. I want to make this community grow, so I joined ADELANTE WITH STEM which is a program directed to latinos that encouraged this community to be involved in Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics fields, for this communities underrepresented it. Contra Costa is growing in these programs and I am currently planning on opening a new program for engineering prospective students. I am really excited and hope that my future endeavors come with successes and learning.
