Ray Hernandez

Hometown:
Provo, UT

My Story:
I always knew that I loved people, but I didn't know how I could address that in a major.

Thinking that I wanted to go to med school, I began the Neuroscience program and realized I wasn't passionate about the material I was learning. I discovered the International Development minor and finally felt like I was excited to attend my classes and make lasting change in the world. That led me to discover my current major: Sociology.

Jinhee Nelson

Hometown:
Provo, UT

My Story:
I started my major journey at BYU with a plethora of interests and not-a-lot of direction.

Moving from sociocultural anthropology to sociology to finally history, it's taken me a while to discover what major best suited my desire to learn about people and in what way.

Bradford Paul

Hometown:
Mesa, Arizona

My Story:
I have always loved film, music, and the art of design, but I constantly wondered how I could apply those interests to helping people.

I went from a major in Aviation, to Psychology, to Business Management, and then finally Information Systems. During this time, I made connections that showed me how I can use my creativity in other, non-traditional ways. I discovered that Information Systems gives me the opportunity to design solutions for people using various tools in technology and I love what I’m learning!

Sarah Jacobs

Hometown:
Provo, Utah

My Story:
When I came to BYU, I quickly realized that what I wanted in high school no longer suited what I wanted to do. I had always thought of becoming a nurse or stay heavily involved in music as it was such a huge part of my identity.

With a huge pivot in mind and a desire to explore my options and embrace all of the different facets of myself, I didn’t know which direction to go. After some major exploration, I landed on Family Life with an emphasis in Family Studies and I love it!

Parker Carlquist

Hometown:
Eden, Idaho

My Story:
I started college with interests in lots of different areas. I began considering Mechanical Engineering but quickly realized in class that I would never love or enjoy it. I felt lost and wondered, “What next?”

After considering about 10 different options, an advisor presented Public Health as a possibility. It was as if a switch flipped and I saw a possible perfect merger of my interests in science and government! Even now, the exploration continues as I consider the possibilities within Public Health.
