Meet Hannah Miller.  Blogging from:

I like to think of my self as a "Rural Woman Rockin' College", so with that in mind I decided to do this post about staying true to yourself in college and hit on few tips that I may have not foreseen entering into the college world.


1. Stay true to yourself. This statement may seem simple but can prove to be so very difficult. As a young woman coming from a rural community entering into college it can be such a culture shock. I know that I didn't want to be known as the "hick" girl from the south who liked cows. Being anyone but yourself will attract the wrong kind of people, be who you are and you will find the friends who are worth keeping around.


2. Find friends! Join an organization or group that is passionate about the same things that you are. Finding an organization will not only help you find friends but help you network and grow with your passion. I know personally joining Sigma Alpha Agriculture Sorority has helped me not only pinpoint my passions but introduced me to so many networks, helped me find a house, a job, and a family away from home.






3. NEVER STOP DREAMING! I am the prime example for this quote, I have transferred schools three times to figure out what I want to do in life. I think it's okay to spend time figuring out what is going to make you happy and then going for it, never is it a waste of time.







4. There are enough ugly heart-ed people in this world, just be nice. Be nice to your professors, be nice to your roommate that annoys you, be nice to the rude librarian who won't help you... just be nice. There is nothing that will get you further then just being nice and hard work. (Always remember rudeness is a persons imitation of strength)


5. Last but not least just keep calm! School is hard, everyone
is going to have a bad class or even a bad semester. This is your time to discover yourself, so don't rush it. Take every chance you get to experience the world before actually having to be in it.


Thank you Rural Women Rock for this opportunity! I am so happy that I can call myself a rural woman and that we have a way to share our unique stories!

  9. Great advice for all young women as they enter college. Actually, great advice for everyone. Staying true to yourself is such a challenge when you are young and such a challenge to return to your true self once you have strayed. Hannah, share your message to all young people, maybe then the trip back to self will be much shorter than the one I embarked on when I was in my 30's.
