I think my biggest regret was not believing in myself that I can be accepted to the civil engineering program in one of the prestigious universities here in our country. Back then, I am so afraid to fail and be tagged as someone who aspires for something more than what she can achieve. For that very reason, I did not apply for the program and opted for a course that relatively gives me a higher chance of acceptance. I have strived enough to graduate but until then my heart still longs for the profession that I've dreamt of since I was a kid. If only I tried. If only I convinced my parents that I can do it, and if ever I can't, they will still be proud of me for trying.
But even though I do not fully like the program I graduated from, I do admit that I have learned much from it, and more than the knowledge, this course has brought me to the people who until now are very dear to me.
