Change. Sometimes we dread it. Sometimes we love it. Sometimes it is a drag at the beginning, but it turns out to be the best thing to ever happen to us.
We experience some sort of change almost everyday. Change and our adaptation to change makes us who we are. In our world today we are experiencing a lot of changes as big as the President of the United States to as little as the type of music that is coming out.
Change is in everyone’s story.
Zane Gray. Native of Georgia. English major. Lover of movies. Lover of Reece’s pieces.
A time of change and transition in Zane’s life was when he came to Gardner-Webb. He met his roommate, Joseph, through the online roommate directory that the school provided and for the first month they hardly spoke to each. After the first month Zane’s phone broke which provided a great segue for roommate bonding.
Before coming to college, Zane was overwhelmed, but he was excited to take on new things. He discovered that people were more open in college. College, specifically Gardner-Webb, was a place full of caregivers. High school was a place where no one really respected your opinion. College provided a place where you could be who you wanted to be and strive for what you wanted to in your future.
One of the positive things that came from this transition from a place that was familiar to an unknown adventure was Zane’s faith. He has been challenged and poured into by many individuals on this campus.
Today Zane Gray is thankful for:
-the opportunity to come to know so many people
-family that loves him and a home to go to
-the most ideal roommate he could ever ask for
