It's a very challenging experience, both the fact that it's a more academically rigorous place than high school and that I'm having to take care of myself. The most important and also most disconcerting thing is finding my place in the world and doing the best I can to give back to the gifts I've been given in life, and I can't think of a better place than where I am now to find that purpose.

My first year at TCU was absolutely incredible. The people you will meet are great, the sports are incredible, and the weather is amazing.
