Moving to Arizona for the Summer

In early May, I’ll be moving from Ohio to Phoenix, Arizona for an internship with Freeport McMoRan. This will be the first time in my life that I’ve lived so far away from home in a city where I don’t know anyone. I’ve always dreamt of living in Arizona, surrounded by cacti and mountains, but the end of this semester will leave me feeling bittersweet.

Usually by the end of spring semester, I’m ready to go home and spend time with family, start a job, and basically have a “fresh start,” but this past school year has been one of the best; I’ve grown closer to the students in my major, gained more interest in new, major specific classes, and become a happier and more positive person in general.

I still am incredibly excited to move to Arizona and work in a different field in an effort to help me figure out what direction I want to take after I graduate. Even though I’m excited and nervous for this opportunity, I truly believe in the quote: “take the leap if it is worth the fall”. In that spirit, I can’t wait for this opportunity and to see where it leads me in the future!
