Emma: I also started college right after high school. I wasn't too excited about it at first, as I didn't really know what I wanted to study or what I really wanted to do for a job in the future. My parents encouraged me to go ahead and start college, even though I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in yet. I'm so glad I took their advice! I really enjoyed college, I studied Philosophy and received my Bachelor of Arts from Missouri State. I am currently working towards my Master's degree in business administration. My business classes have helped me be a better small business owner. I'm a good example of someone who learns best from education, through classroom settings and books. That type of learning style might not be for everyone, but it is certainly best for me and I would not have found that out had I not gone to college.
