One way tickets

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

I just graduated with my MPH, which is a Masters of Public Health. This time of transition makes me think back to when I initially moved to Texas three years ago. I grew up in South Carolina and went to school in North Carolina, so getting a one-way ticket to move to a new place was exciting and intimidating. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and move away from the familiar things that I already knew and had experienced (also one reason that I did not want to attend college in SC). A one-way ticket can be scary, but think of it as a chance to discover yourself in new surroundings. I have grown to love Houston. I believe that it is a good idea to move away to a new place at some point in your life because it is such an eye opening experience that helps you find out more about what you want in life. I have had friends who move away and hated it…BUT either way it serves as a learning experience. It can be nerve wrecking, but I look forward to finding out where my life will take me next. If you ever have doubts or fears, my advice is always to go. If it doesn’t work out you can always come back.
