Journal Entry: February 16th, 2023

Dear Journal,

As a student, I've always dreamed of making a difference in the world. But lately, I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed and unsure about how to turn that dream into a reality. That's why I've decided to start keeping a journal, to document my journey and hopefully inspire others along the way.

I remember when I first started college, I was so excited to be there. The campus was bustling with activity, and I was surrounded by so many talented and passionate individuals. But as time went on, the pressure to excel academically started to take its toll. I found myself staying up late to study, skipping meals to make deadlines, and constantly comparing myself to others. I started to feel like I wasn't good enough, like I didn't have what it takes to make a difference.

But then, something happened that changed everything. One day, I was walking through the quad when I saw a group of students holding a rally for a cause that they were passionate about. They were shouting and chanting, holding up signs, and encouraging others to join them. I was hesitant at first, but something inside of me urged me to join them. So I did.

It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. Standing there with those students, fighting for something we believed in, I felt a sense of purpose and belonging that I hadn't felt in a long time. I realized that I didn't have to be the smartest or the most talented to make a difference. All I needed was passion and the willingness to take action.

From that moment on, I started to seek out opportunities to get involved. I joined clubs and organizations, volunteered in my community, and started to speak out on issues that were important to me. I made new friends, learned new skills, and gained a sense of confidence that I never knew I had.

And you know what? It worked. I may not have changed the world, but I did make a difference in my own small way. I inspired others to get involved, I helped raise awareness on important issues, and I made a positive impact on those around me.

So to anyone out there who may be feeling discouraged or unsure about their abilities, I want to say this: You have what it takes to make a difference. All you need is passion and the willingness to take action. Don't let the pressure of academia or the fear of failure hold you back. Instead, take that first step, join that club, volunteer, speak out. You never know where it might lead you.

I can't wait to see where my journey takes me next, and I'm excited to continue documenting it in this journal. Who knows, maybe one day my story will inspire someone else to take action and make a difference in their own way.

Until next time,

[Prasiddha Subedi]
