Michigan State University has changed my life so much that I don't even know where to start so I will get to the point.

My Life BEFORE Michigan State University:

I'm from Southern California.

I'm Hispanic.

Had no Father figure whatsoever in my life.

Southern California made me superficial.

Money, Cars, Social Status consumed my mind,body and soul.

I was ignorant.

I hated life.

I had no confidence.

I thought that EVERYONE was better than me.

I had the lowest self-esteem ever.

I had no self-respect.

I was scatter brained.

I had no direction.

I always took up stereotypical labor jobs because thats what I thought my self-worth was.

I was always, always depressed.

I contemplated Suicide many times.

I thought that the white man was always here to hold hispanics down and I also thought that the white man had everything.

and the list can go on and on….

My Life AFTER Michigan State University:

I'm still from Southern California

I'm still Hispanic

I consider MSU a stepfather to me because of the experiences and education that it has provided me.

I am now a humble and grounded person.

I Look forward to Life now

I Look Forward to MY Future

I found MY Self-Confidence.

I have self-respect.

I have purpose.

I have direction.

I have substance.

My newly found confidence has helped me to overcome depression.

I now find myself applying to jobs with starting salaries of $60,000+

I realize that white America is not here to hold minorities down. The student body is mostly white and I have made many great friends. I never experienced any racism. If anything I realized that there are a lot of white Americans who are poor and who are struggling to make it through college. It was an eye opener for me.

Overall I cannot put a price tag on my experiences at MSU. It changed my life. I feel that I could not have gotten these life changing experiences from most other universities. I did have tough times but I stuck it out. I learned perseverance. I was better for it in the end and believe me I went through some sh!t but I made it through and got my degree. I found who I was in the process.

Go Green!Go White!Go Spartans! oh yeah, two more things, MSU has Tom Izzo, ha, he's the sh!t and MSU has the best looking white chicks ever.
