New (academic) year, same incredible you!
This year, students are a different breed; you have balanced schoolwork, clinic schedules, and personal lives all while adapting to the dynamically changing world of a global pandemic. Take a pause and really give yourself credit for that accomplishment.
Now as we flip the calendar page to a new academic year, my hope for you is this – remember to find the fun again!
Your journey to become an audiologist should be fun! Embrace this by finding whatever niche in our community brings you joy and jumping into it. Maybe you’re a social person – check out networking opportunities or sign up for the volunteer reserve. Enjoy events? Consider attending a local or national SAA event with a friend or start planning for the 2022 SAA Conference. Or maybe you just love to bury your nose in a good book; you might find some interesting reads in our student publications or Audiology Today. Whatever is right for you, if you weave fun into your education then fun will find its way into your career as well.
Find your fun, make your coffee, take a deep breath, and let’s tackle this year together!
