My name is Alexis Daniels and I am an Information Sytems major here at VCU School of Business. I did not think I would be able to come here but now I am here and it has been a great experience so far. I have learned so many things and have interacted with so many new people. I grew up in Norfolk, VA but then later moved to Chesapeake, VA. The middle school I attended was Hugo Owens Middle School. I played basketball and track. On the basketball team my team was able to play in the championship for our district and we won the championship and that was a great experience as well. The highschool that I attended was Deep Creek High School. I play basketball there as well and my first year being there I was able to join the Varisty Basketball team which was pretty cool. Every since then I have been playing basketball and I probably won't stop because I love it so much.Unforunately, I was not able to get a scholarship to play basketaball at a university, but my grades made up for it. That goes to show having good grades goes a long way.
I didn't know much about Information Sytems before I came to VCU. It was very hard at first trying to make new friends and explore different places, but after joining the VCU Women's Basketball team I actually made more friends than I could expect. Some of the classes I had in the beginning we easy, but when I actually declared for my major, it became more harder. They say that you Junior year is your most hardest year and I am definitely feeling this effect right now. I have never pulled an all-nighter in my life and I did that and I promised myself that I would never do that again. Some people work hard in college and some people ust basically waste time and money. I am the total opposite. I am paying to be here and get and education and I do not want any of this to go to waste. This is my opportunity to make my family proud. Show them that they raised me right and I want to be able to provide and be there for my family like they are there for me. So going here, to Virginia Commonwealth University, I feel like that is going to give me the opportunity that I need to be successful in life and in my career. Some people do not take advantage of the opportunity, but I will not let this go to waste. My parents have spent too much money for me to be here and I want to make them proud and also my grandparents as well.
Some of my other hobbies that I like to do is watch movies, sleep, sing, and spend time with family and some friends. I can not wait until my birthday and Christmas. I feel like that is the best time of the year. Maybe I like it so much because I am a December baby. Some of my favorite singers are, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Monica, etc. I love listening to music. It can be a real stress reliever for you. Just listening to the words itself. I love to sleep also. I feel like everyone should sleep or at least have 1 nap a day, if it is possibele. Some people can not do that just because of the type of job that they have , but if you can get just 1 in, I am pretty sure that it will change your life completely and for the better. My mom thinks I sleep to much, but if she only knew how hard the semester has been for me, she would be sleeping for me too. Sometimes to relieve stress, I go to the gym and play basketaball. Some of the guys think I can't play with them, but as soon as I start making my shots and everything, then they realize that I can actually play. Which is extremely funny. Something else I might do is clean my apartment. Sometimes just cleaning is a stress reliever itself.
