One or two majors out of... hundreds?
How do you pick just one or two majors? When first coming to college, it may seem very overwhelming since at UC Berkeley there are hundreds of different majors, so one may feel as if they don't know where to start. However, I believe that the most important part about picking a major is chosing something that you have an interest in. Do not chose something because your parents, your boyfriends, or your family want you to do. Do something that YOU want to do. I know, this may sound trite and obvious, but you know, there are pressures out there from our loved ones telling us that they want us to do this, but really, who are you living for? You are living for you and only you.
How I went about chosing my major is similar to my why CNR blog on how I became to be in the college of natural resources. I chose it because I did not know that it was in CNR or a different college from L&S. However, I realized how interesting the biology majors in CNR are. The one I chose, Microbial Biology interests me because it is about the study of viruses and bacteria and how they may affect us. Since I have an interest in becoming a pediatrician and going into medicine, I figured that this major would perfectly suit my interests.
