“I don’t doubt that I can achieve my dreams even if things look bleak now. Other women should have that mindset no matter what society tells them.”
Orange County, NY
Being a young college woman, I am in the process of preparing myself for graduation and it is difficult. While counting down the days until graduation, I always ask myself ‘Did I use my college experience to its fullest?’ Also, I wonder if I used every resource that was available to me. My major is communications arts with a focus in broadcast & digital content production. I would like to be able to say that I am not worried, but it’s tough competition out there. I feel like I always have to put that extra effort in to show that I have the qualifications like everyone else, especially a man. Everyday is a challenge to make sure my resume is on par as I’m always searching for internships and entry-level jobs because they all require some sort of experience. I also feel that my field is a very male driven field, so when you do see women, I feel like they are not always receiving their due credit. I’m actually afraid of what my future will entail after graduation because it is a mystery. But on the other hand, I don’t doubt that I can achieve my dreams even if things look bleak now. I know I’m going to get that internship and my dream job. Other women should have that mindset no matter what society tells them.
