Proud to be PAL Bubble-ized

For those who are familiar with my habits, they know I’m the type of person who spends hours scrunched in front of the computer researching new things—programs, opportunities, activities—because I find myself constantly wondering what kinds of great things are out there. Some say we students live in our own “Berkeley bubble” because we are so sheltered from the outside world, but I believe these students do not know the true meaning of involvement, nor do they appreciate the unique opportunities that Cal has to offer. So, after reading the PAL website and talking to a PAL about his past experiences, I decided that the PAL program would be really fun to be a part of. I realized that 1) it would be a great chance to gain leadership experience, 2) I could now tell all my friends that I have office hours and a business card, 3) I could finally get credit for giving people advice (which I love to do), and 4) I might meet the Chancellor! (Or many other cool people who are a part of running Berkeley’s campus.)

Hopefully by the end of the program, I would like to have met a sprinkling of the vast array of diversity that exists on campus. I also would like to be very familiar with the ins-and-outs of CNR, as well as learn how to deal with different scenarios unique to peer advising. I am very excited, but more importantly proud, to be part of the representation of CNR as a PAL.
