I’ve come to believe that the obstacles that we are faced with are opportunities for us to grow. This is evident in my day to day life and has been reinforced during my time at Goucher. I’ll start by saying that there is no other college for me. I love the Gouchers way of teaching and learning. I hope to carry their pedagogy with me as I teach with and learn from others. I’ve been at Goucher for two years and I’ve been introduced to so many new perspectives. I know that these perspective will contribute to my growth. Because of some miscalculations in my financial aid I need to raise $1800 to go back to Goucher. I’ve had great opportunities at Goucher. These include winning the student government presidency and working at the Goucher poll. These opportunities are representative of why I call Goucher home.
