My name is Bridget O'Connor. I am going to be a junior at Indiana University. I recently switched my major from Journalism to Secondary English Education. Because of my late change of mind about my major, I will have to attend college for a fifth year, which is totally fine with me. My plan was to graduate from the journalism school, pursue a career in PR and advertising and hopefully study abroad at some point. However, as soon as I thought I had my life figured it, I realized a different passion was calling my name and I could not ignore it. If I've learned one thing from life, it's that nothing goes as planned...but if we follow our intuition, we will end up where we are supposed to be. That's when I knew I had to go into education. I have always loved reading, writing and all things english, so that's the route I decided to aim for. I am so incredibly excited to follow this dream and (hopefully) make a difference in student's lives.
The pictures above say more about who I am and what I love.
