I Became a Nicer Person

By DMA Sophomore Sophia Falasca

My experience with this course in the beginning was very rocky. I didn’t like doing work and I thought this class was going to be doing fun stuff. My opinion has changed throughout the course. I think that it is very helpful in an unknown way. I didn’t know how much this course has changed me in a positive way until writing this. I became a way nicer person and started realizing more things happening around me. I was reminded to treat people the way I want to be treated, and that I am not the only one going through things at home. There’s a lot of people going through harder stuff than me. It is not ok to treat people with disrespect when I know dang well you wouldn’t want to be treated like that. If everyone had the mindset to treat people the way they want to be treated, it will make this world a way better place to live. I am very concerned about mental health and this class teaches some concepts to help you if you are struggling. It is ok to not be ok. But it is not ok to suffer in silence. Bottling up your emotions will only make them stronger; speaking out will help you in ways you don’t even know. Overall this class has a bunch of potential. I just think if we want to make a change we need to bring this to a bigger audience. For right now I like being in this class and I am excited to keep learning.
