Coming into college, I had no idea what to expect to be honest. For a Hawaii kid that came out to the mainland with no background knowledge coming in, it was rough to begin with. I would progress through school like I always did, calm, cool and collected. I made lots of friends, got good grades and even picked up a side hobby of gym basketball with the people on my floor. In my opinion, college was what you made of it, and I decided to do what I pleased without hearing out anyone's opinion on how I should be living my college life — or so I thought.
