Change can be a very difficult topic for some. People are afraid it, others embrace it. It can be as minor as a haircut or as big as starting a new school in a new area.

I personally welcome change. As I start my junior year with a new position, losing people close to my heart, meeting new friends and colleagues in the process I’m okay with change.

It’s getting out of your comfort zone and exploring new possibilities. While one door closes behind you, another opens with a brighter future. I’ve dealt with change all throughout my life as do most people growing up. Personally I think it’s best to embrace it, how is one supposed to grow without becoming someone new in the process.

As we start this new year here at the University of Hartford I hope everyone including myself looks around and wonders what needs to be adjusted. Whether you’re with someone you realize you don’t be with or aren’t happy with what you’re studying, transform yourself.

Be with people you want to be with, take classes you find interesting just because you want to learn more. Don’t let doubt get in the way of something that has the potential to change your life, whether it’d be big or small.

The best advice I could give is to be open minded and talk to new people. Join new clubs or try out for something you’d otherwise be afraid of getting rejecting in.

It’s a new year and none of should fear the possibility of change if it arrives. Embrace it.
