I knew Trinity College would be thIMG_1133e best fit for me the second I stepped foot onto the campus. I felt a welcoming presence and an ambiance that resonated with me. I decided to ED (Early Decision) and was notified in December that I got accepted! Let me tell you, logging in to check whether I made it in or not was the most nerve-wrecking 20 seconds of my life, but I did it and now I am here and do not regret my decision one bit! I would say that one of my biggest strengths is that once I feel like I am ignorant in a particular subject or topic, I use several resources to retain that knowledge and become educated on that particular topic. However, I need to work on procrastinating a lost less than I already do if I want to go the International Studies route; this major is writing intensive and I need to prepare myself, mentally, for that.

Primary Research by Discipline

The primary source was created on 1694 The material it contains is a discussion with regards to the “divine providence” in London. The approach I took to find this primary source was that I needed…

Social Media vs Traditional News Sources

Social Media: Both of these photos were retweeted several times, and would no doubt call attention to people who retain there information from Twitter. However, both pictures are a bit questionable because their source does not seem 100% legit, and could easily be feeding people invalid information.
