I love NC State. I loved my experience at NC State. 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:03.539
NC State has a lot of areas I think it needs to improve. 00:00:03.539 - 00:00:06.404
I still have that student government mindset, that senate mindset about myself, about things I'd like to see changed, 00:00:06.404 - 00:00:11.127
but I loved it, I loved my experience, I wouldn't take it back for anything. 00:00:11.127 - 00:00:16.379
I would impress that people have to step outside of their comfort zone, 00:00:16.379 - 00:00:25.345
and once they do, they might not like everything that they experience, 00:00:25.345 - 00:00:29.613
they might not like everything they see, 00:00:29.613 - 00:00:31.859
they might find out that somebody they thought they were close to was not somebody that they knew who they were, 00:00:31.859 - 00:00:39.493
but ultimately it is something that will inform you for the rest of your life 00:00:39.493 - 00:00:45.110
and I would not trade-I say that a lot-but I would not trade NC State, I would not trade my experience at NC State, even the things that happened that ruined my college career 00:00:45.110 - 00:00:56.903
in student government, or whatever, even the things that happened in that case, I wouldn't trade them for anything at this point. 00:00:56.903 - 00:01:02.802
