When I was in the seventh grade I moved to Brooklyn, New York. I had no friends in this new city and I did not know what to expect. When the first day of school came I was excited to meet new people and learn about my new surrounding. When I walked into the school auditorium I sat with a couple of people who greeted me. I hung out with them the rest of the day until we all played in the gym. I wanted to play with the best kids and so I walked unto the court and simply asked them. They responded with a laugh and I was shocked. I told them to give me the ball and I shot the ball from five feet behind the three point line. Luckily I scored and that shot changed my life. I became best friends with all the kids who I played with that day and I formed life long bonds. All in all, coming to a new city made me become independent and fearless.

Coming to Baruch College was a huge decision for me. I wanted to learn more about the diverse city while being challenged (the free tuition was also a plus). I want to become a business man and I know the strong business education that Baruch can give me will benefit me in any field that I end up going into. The first week has been fun, as I am meeting people from diverse backgrounds and I am working hard. Academically I hope to do well in all of my classes and I will be happy with any grade if I know I tried my best. Overall, I am excited to learn new things here and become a better informed and better educated person.
