Importance of attending college

soul on fire
Posted August 6, 2018 from India

There was a point in my life where I started to consider not to pursue a degree. An immature teenage me thought what's the point of college?.

But I was wrong. It's really important for us to go to college and achieve our dream.

College gives you an opportunity to portray your uniqueness. It helps you to be a wise individual. You get to learn so many new things through your research rather than a printed specific textbook. You make friends for life.

Well as a law student I got a magnificent opportunity to take a four-week internship at three different places. I did my internship with my besties.  We learned a lot from there. Each place had its own specialties. We also enjoyed a lot.

As a kid, I used to wonder what's the point of education? but now I understand that I underestimated the power of education.

So if you are someone who is going through the difficult time of choosing whether or not to go to college I think you should make a pros and cons list.

Cons are :

You have to work day and night 

That's it ;-) 

Think about your future. 

If you dream of something you have to put a lot of effort. But trust me the end result will be worth it.

So college is the best thing happened in my life. Please share your thoughts;-)

Hi Soorya,

Thanks for sharing your post on the importance of education. I agree that going to college is an important and life-changing opportunity and game changer, even if you don't know exactly what you want to do or focus on right away. Education is never a waste of time.

Dear Soorya Soul On Fire,

First of all, I love your name! I can tell you are alive to make great things happen. This is such a powerful and inspiring message to people who may be facing the same question "What's the point". What a joy to read what you have accomplished by deciding to work hard and keep going. I hope you get the opportunity to speak with lots of young audiences. You are such a bright light! Obvious from your photo, too!
