From a 90’s generation perspective, I’ve found the change in lifestyle with advent of the internet to be fascinating. I remember those elementary school weekends, when I was helplessly sitting at home instead of playing outside due to rain.
During my experience at MSU, I have gotten the opportunity to broaden my perspective and meet students from backgrounds different from my own. In many cases, I found students didn’t have the same opportunities I had, even though they were working just as hard.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” I remember getting asked that question as early as elementary school, and I’m sure many can relate.
I ’m sure that the vast majority of people have at least heard tidbits of the song “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from “Mulan,” whether it be from the Disney movie itself or friends that are singing it nearby. The song depicts that obtaining a strong physique and learning discipline are the keys toward becoming a man.
