Dear First Year Me,
The next four years will bring a lot of unexpected things. You’ll major in psychology, not life sciences like you thought. You’ll find you’re passionate about social psychology and public health, things you never thought about before Yale-NUS. You’ll join more clubs than you can handle and make more memories than you’ll likely remember. You’ll study abroad in Germany, something you never really considered before. You’ll travel around Europe and SoutheastAsia and recognise the privilege that comes with that. After Germany, you’ll goto Yale and after spending a year away from Yale-NUS will you truly realise how special of a place it is. You’ll meet so many wonderful people, people that you won’t want to say goodbye to. It’s a good thing I guess, that life is full of unexpected things and a good-bye are often just a see you soon.
So, stay present Christabelle, these four years will fly by.
