Thanks to my introduction from [insert name] you know that I am currently pursing a Masters in Political Science from Iowa State. What you probably don’t know, and it would be a little odd if you did, is that I attended a community college for the first two years of my education adventures. I attended for the reasons I’m sure that many of your students. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life and community college would give me a good foundation for whatever path I chose and while I was there I could figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Turns out I was right about the first but not so much about the second, I’m still working on what to be when I grow.
