  • Mine to Me

    by Tobe Nwaelugo | Sep 12, 2016

    If you watched The Jungle Book movie this summer, you will know where the phrase ‘Mine to me’ came from. But first a back ground story.

    Last year, during my sophomore year, there were possible threats of my leaving Manchester to another school. I say threat because I was very afraid to leave, I definitely did not want to. When you are facing the possibility that you might have to let go of something you so much love, there will be a certain level of anger and sadness. Being in that situation made me think of all the things I would be missing out on, and made me miss things I had already experienced during my time here. It took me back to my first year.

    My first experience with Manchester was when I dropped off at the Intercultural Center, after a long day of travelling. I walked in and the first thing a bunch of students did was yell my name. I remember meeting my FYS group—I am still friends with most of them. I remember going through the phase of life where I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go through with my major. I remember getting my first job (as a student blogger). Then I proceeded to get 4 more. All the jobs I have had in my two years at Manchester have provided me with a lot of opportunities to better myself. Things I thought you couldn’t learn, I have learnt here. But all in all, I got to stay! (YAY!) and I am super stoked and excited to keep growing, and expanding my connections in Manchester. Enough Said. WELCOME TO MY MANCHESTER!
