Reflections about Shipley
I am not one to lie and say everything was amazing throughout my time at Shipley. Shipley has prepared me to know what I do not want for my life. I think that is incredibly important. I know that I do not want to work a nine-to-five or be constantly swamped by work. I want to do something I love. Going into college I will be doing what I love. I used to fear that being an English major would lead to a hard financial future. However, I do not want to spend my life learning about topics I’m not passionate about. So, I've deiced to follow my passion no matter where it takes me.
