10 Things Everyone Hates About umass amherst alumni
I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s undergraduate and graduate programs, and am currently a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in counseling psychology. In my free time, I am a community advocate for women and youth, and am currently working on making a difference in the life of a youth with mental health issues.
As a graduate of the university and an alum, I have a wealth of knowledge on the program I am applying to, and can talk to prospective students about the different majors and programs through the university. I also have experience with the counseling psychology program and the programs in general.
I am a self-employed consultant specializing in leadership development, and have worked in the field of counseling psychology for over 15 years, primarily for Fortune 500 corporations. I am married to a wonderful woman with a great sense of humor, and have two grown sons. I love to travel, and have loved living in the Washington, DC area my entire life.
As a young college student, I was very successful in my classes. I was the valedictorian of my high school, and received the Distinguished Leadership Award (from the school’s award committee). That meant I got a scholarship to study engineering at MIT for three years. I was not the first to ever apply, but I was the first to get in. I was an engineering major, but I decided I wanted to be a social psychologist.
I was in the first year of my program, and the program was known as the ‘MIT for Social Scientists’. I was the only engineering major in the entire program. I was really excited for my first year of classes to begin, because of my social psychology major. I started out feeling pretty anxious. I had a lot of trouble sleeping, and a lot of trouble concentrating. I felt like I didn’t really belong in the program, and I didn’t care.
Now that you realize that the program has been in existence for a few years, you’ll soon realize that your anxiety was mostly due to your fears of not fitting in. For those of you with social anxiety issues (I know I did), this can be a very good thing. It means that you can learn how to relax, and it means you can learn how to adjust your expectations of what you want out of life.
I remember feeling the exact same way when I first got to college. I was scared to be myself, and I knew it was going to be hard. I mean I knew it was going to be hard because I was trying to fit in. But I didn’t want to fail, I didn’t want to be a failure, I wanted to be exceptional. And so I did everything in my power to try to fit in with my peers.
The problem was that even though I looked the part, there was a lot of pressure to fit in and be the part. I remember sitting in a lecture and feeling just overwhelmed by the whole situation, because I couldn’t really communicate that I needed help. I couldn’t really say, “Hey, I’m having a rough day, I want to try to fit in.
I wish I had the answer to your question, but I don’t. But if I did, it would probably be to stop trying to fit into the group and to just be yourself, to make a good impression but not to think that you have to be liked. I think that would make everyone feel better.
I think that if you have a strong sense of self, you wont always have to try and fit in. I don’t know if you’ve already met me, but I am a great friend and I just happen to be the type of person who needs no one in my life.
