Hello! I’m starting a series of sort, featuring some people whom I can’t describe in more accurate terms than as to having a “friend crush*” on them, asking about their college experience. These are the people I look up to, and people I find genuine and inspiring.

Here is the first introduction. This is Louise Tam. She is a graduating senior from AdMU.

Louise (I call her Tami cause I’m spesh) was my classmate during my 7:30 AM, T-Th, Environmental Science class during my first semester ever in college. It was interesting to find out that we are actually related, albeit in a very distant way. Still, meeting her felt very special and almost “destined.” (chz, but you know some people whom you feel like you just *had* to meet?)

In this video, I asked her to share her best college advice, thoughts, learnings, and experiences. She brought up the honest reality of how it’s okay to not have everything all figured out once you’ve reached adulthood (or at least reaching the ages that don’t end in “-teen” anymore.)

I hope you find her words helpful and comforting, that it’s okay to try things out, to not confine oneself to one thing. That it’s okay to change your mind, learn more about yourself, and move forward. That you have time to find what’s best for you, because in the end, this is your life, and in this fast-paced world where everyone seems to be good in everything, it’s okay to feel lost and figure yourself out little by little.

Thank you Tami, for being a part of my video series and sharing a little part of you. Thank you as well for letting me take some portraits of you.
