Discovering a Passion for Language from a Senior

Today’s journal is by GG Volunteer Ellen from New York, who decided her college major thanks to a relationship she formed with a senior she met through GlamourGals.

When I found myself brainstorming for possible college essay topics, I found myself thinking about writing a story about how I met a senior during one of my chapter's visits. Her name was Elise and she helped me realize for passion for foreign languages. Elise and I spoke German together since she is from Austria. Every visit, it is very cool to be able to speak German with this lady since I learn German in school and I'm able to practice it with a native speaker.

Her story ultimately helped me realize why I love foreign languages and now that I'm a senior, it helped realize I definitely want to learn languages in college. Without meeting this lady through Glamour Gals, I may have never found my passion for foreign languages.
