我最喜欢的老师是 Dr. 羁绊. I had always been very interested in nutrition, but fearing the intimidating reputation of STEM majors, I avoided it in my degree exploration. 然而,博士. 羁绊's NUT10 class completely flipped my mentality. Not only did the material excite and engage me, Dr. 镣铐也一样. She constantly consulted students, connecting our lives to the subjects we studied. She broke down complex topics with great, accessible analogies. She not only valued the education we could gain from the class, but the real life skills that would improve our health. It was there that I realized I also wanted to help people make better choices for their health. 所以，感谢博士. 羁绊, I gained the confidence to declare a major in 营养科学 with an emphasis in public health the next quarter, and I have been invested in it ever since.

I had to overcome a lot of self-doubt when I first entered 十大靠谱网赌游戏. I heard about so many others' amazing accomplishments as I got to know them: this SAT score, 那么多AP课程, whichever great achievement they had achieved in their years prior to Davis. And while it was fascinating to be surrounded by such driven, 启发人, 很难不进行比较. I suddenly began to feel like my accomplishments weren't nearly as impressive. It hit even harder as I struggled in my classes. However, I refused to let my college experience be ruined by self-doubt. I overcame these struggles by reaching out for help, and luckily Davis offered a lot of help. 我经常 参加辅导, spoke with various advisors about improving my work ethic and started getting involved with 完成项目. 在我的秋季学期结束前, I already had multiple accomplishments to be proud of, 还有自信, positive attitude that propelled me through the rest of the year.
