Dear Young Self

Categories: Members

Ever think about what you would tell your freshman year self if you could go back in time? What advice you’d give? Obviously, we can’t travel time. But through our Enactus club, we have the opportunity to share advice with others and to look to others for guidance. We asked a few of our club’s seniors what they’d say to their young self. Here’s what they shared:




“You get out of Enactus what you put into it.”

-Kristina Arge





Gabriela Flores


“College is more than classes. Step out of your comfort zone and enjoy the ride! Get involved in different things, meet new people, be part of Enactus, and get good grades. This is the best time of your life!”

-Gabriela Mejia

“Don’t let fear stop you from pursuing friendships, new passions, or anything else. Too often we allow our lack of self-confidence to hold us back, because we feel like we are inadequate. The truth is that you are much more than adequate, and you have so much to offer to the world around you!”

-Meaghan Ranz




Tayler Insuaste


“Quickly learn what time management is in order to make the most out of your four years in college. Also, start prepping for post-grad life from day 1 by gaining experience relevant to your interests, whether that be through work/volunteer experiences during the school year and summer, any kind of student projects you can help with, etc. “

-Tayler Insuaste




Andrew Sauer


“Learning is your own responsibility. Class should be only an accessory to be able to interact with and ask questions about material you are already wrestling with.”

-Andrew Sauer

“Take risks while you are in college, whether that be running for school president or heading abroad for a semester. Live for your passions because that will result in your best work. Do the unconventional; live the nontraditional.”

-Sara Lowe




Erin Morningstar


“Don’t sacrifice what you want most for what you want now. Think about what’s most important to you, where you want to be, who you want to be. Decide what kind of person you want to be and start acting like them everyday.”

-Erin Morningstar
