Learning to love your learning will guarantee you success in college (and arguably in your life). While we all come to college for various reasons, there is a singular implied objective that we all share: earning a degree. The journey to the degree is not always on a clearly defined, straight path; I personally have had my share of challenges and discouragements, ranging from personal to financial to academic, along the way.

Photo of MirellaI came to Iowa State from Texas knowing no one. The one thing I thought about most often about coming to Iowa State was not the usual “how was I going to make friends?” or “where Maple Hall is?” Instead, I thought about my name. My name is Mirella, pronounced Me-rhe-YA. My entire school career my name has been a struggle for other people to learn and pronounce.
