I moved across the United States last year, from Atlanta Georgia to Missoula Montana, to attend the University of Montana. This was my biggest dream since I began looking into colleges and began struggling with being bullied, depression, and an eating disorder. My parents said if I truly wanted to go to the University of Montana, find out who I am, what I like to do, share my self and life experiences with others, I had two opinions: 1. Keep your eating disorder that has only been hurting you and everyone around you now for 4 years. (OR) 2. Truly try my hardest to make peace with myself and everyday hold onto recovery and don't give up and you can attend the University of Montana. I am now about to began my Fall semester of my sophomore year here at the University of Montana. I am doing so great. The past year, yes of course was rough finding myself and what I like, but I have come to a peace and understanding of things, thought, ideas, myself, my life, my family, etc. I smile today knowing that attending college at the University of Montana and leaving Georgia to come out West to Montana; it was the best decision I have ever made. I see hope for my future. I have unlocked so many qualities of myself, life, and others that I have never seen before or shut out in my depression. And the greatest thing today is: I only know I have so many more mountains to climb, new struggles to gain and fight, and so many more secrets about my life and myself that I never allowed myself to open up to see. :)
