Don’t Drink the Juice
by Zia Owens, UWCM 12th of July, 2022 A case against perfectionism I was something of a pathological liar as...
“You should be so grateful for such an opportunity, you get to attend a UWC school!”
“UWC will be two years of awesomeness and self-discovery.”
“Think of it, no parents or family, in a strange country…girl..you’re going to vibe and have fun.”
A month later, no one told me I would feel like this….no one told me about the UWC SYNDROME!
Whether you admit it or not, we’ve all felt (and feel) dumb the moment we walked out of our first class in UWC. And the reason you signed up for all those conferences knowing fully well you have no time is because you want to feel not dumb.
Well so do I, nice to meet you. Do say hi when you see me.
“One of you always goes first, but it’s hard being left behind.”
