Alex Deans-Gravlee
  2017, Psychology and Linguistics  Department of Licensing (Washington State Government)

I took a few classes that sounded interesting and tried to look for things that I wanted to learn about. I wanted my major and career to involve something I was interested in and passionate about. I decided to double major in Psychology and Linguistics because they were open-ended enough to not limit me to one future path, but still focused enough to gain skills and knowledge useful for future positions. Try to remember that a bachelor's degree does not mark out your entire life plan - you will always be able to do something different.
