The Post-College Transition

By Julia Powers

I’ve enjoyed life in college. A lot. I don’t think I’m alone in that. So when I got to the Blue Ridge Region’s chapter camp recently and entered a track called “Life After College,” I knew God was about to make me pretty uncomfortable.

Strong GPA: check. High GRE scores: check. Solid statement of purpose: check. My graduate school applications were nearly complete; all I needed were recommendation letters.

I am not a leader. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself. The problem is, no one but me seems to believe it. Ever since my staff worker encouraged me to fill out that leadership application at the end of my freshman year, I have been surrounded by people who are constantly calling me to lead stuff.
