After completing this internship, and getting to talk to many of the business owners and managers in Hamilton, Texas, I chose to switch my major back to General Business. Going to Hamilton opened my eyes to many of the different types of jobs and businesses there are in a rural community, and getting a general business degree will help me to fulfill my dreams of moving back to a small town.
Before going to Hamilton, I was very unsure of myself and my expectations of my future. After meeting so many in the community there, and staying with so many different families with different traditions and different views, I feel as though I have truly become more confident in my abilities. Getting to go to different businesses and truly seeing what goes on “behind the scenes” has helped me to choose a different path for myself, one that hopefully continues to help me grow.
