Christians on Campus - Austin, Texas
Continuing from my post Christians on Campus - Transitioning into College, I applied to UT McCombs School of Business since I was headed toward the business field, but guess what, my application got denied. I knew it was a tough business school to get into but getting denied from the only school I wanted to enroll in was a total blow.
My parents, siblings, and all of my relatives began to worry about me, about my college career, about my future. My dad couldn't stop thinking how behind I was compared to my high school friends, who were already in freshmen in college. My grandma was worried if I would ever go to college. My siblings were wondering what I would do everyday with no school, no work, nothing. Usually other people's opinions would have so much weight on my decision-making, but I was clear within my being that I needed to do everything I could to get to Austin, Texas.
My last option was to apply to a community college in Austin. Everyone was not so happy about this decision. My family expected me to go to a four-year college right away. My high school teachers expected me to go to a prestigious university. Yet it was my choice, or shall I say, I knew within that my destination was already marked. I got accepted to Austin Community College.
So here I come, Austin, Texas. Here I come, Christians on Campus. So here I come, Lord.
