Steady as I go : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
Upon arriving at Ball State as a freshman, I felt particularly lost and adrift in terms of what I wanted as my major, and what I wanted to pursue as my career. I had a myriad of possibilities running through my mind at any one time, from Art, to Architecture, Biology to Chemistry. As I became accustomed to the climate of the university world, however, I began taking certain classes that helped me find my identity and what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. In the end, I realized what it was I truly wanted to become, a veterinarian. I felt that I looked at and felt about animals differently than most people, and I wanted to ensure I could do anything in my power to help them. Composed of 3 panels called "Undecided", "An Open Door", and "Steady", this project is meant as a visual chronicle of my journey from a lost, unsteady freshman through exploring opportunities, to the confident and steadfast future veterinarian that I am today.
