Three pieces of advice:

  1. Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Speak up and participate by asking questions and also answering them. Learn how to have meaningful discussions.
  2. Do everything at your pace and know your limits, but don’t be reluctant to try something you’d never expect yourself to!
  3. There are so many opportunities and resources to utilize here at UConn, so take advantage whenever and wherever you can.
