When asked to introduce myself, I often find myself stumbling for words. Should I be able to describe myself in one paragraph, one sentence, one word? The questions persist. To me Introductions are a window of opportunity into retrospection, too truly question who you are. Yet, I still find myself at a loss for words to describe my life and myself.
So, I start the same most times. My name is Emerald (just like the stone). I am 20 (almost 21). I am currently a junior Mechanical Engineering major at Southern Poly. I transferred from KSU in the fall of 2013.I love tennis, I love books and writing. I really love learning new things, whether it be a new recipe or a new skill. To me, expanding your mind is one of the most beautiful and fulfilling things.
I could try to put all of me into one statement, however that would be a fallacy. I am not one paragraph, one sentence, one word. I am a lover of many things, from poetry to science, from rock to classical. I adorn many hats. I don’t think I ever want to claim that I am one thing. I want to be an open book, with a story to be forever changing. I want to write my story, so that I may look back at it with satisfaction and joy. Join me on my exploration of college, life and all the wonderment along the way.
