After reading the advice suggested by last year’s students, I have collected a few important pieces of information; don’t procrastinate, be outgoing, and be willing to change. All of these things are something I generally struggle with, so I am ready to get out of my comfort zone. I’m not afraid to admit that my biggest academic struggle is procrastination, no matter what the subject is. However, I know that with design it is essential not to procrastinate, because you need to go through various designs before you settle with the best one. I also have to be willing to share my designs with my peers and be ready to discuss my thoughts. I am very shy, so this too will be a struggle. My peers and Prof. Strong are only there to help me and push me further, so I have no reason to shy away from critiques and comments.
