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.

My Story:
When I came home from my mission, I had no idea what I wanted to do! I did a lot of exploration activities that mainly focused on getting to know myself.

I started out as a Business major and switched to English before finally settling on Sociology. It took me a while to figure it out but constantly exploring my options made all the difference.

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.

My Story:
We all have the opportunity to experience that “A-ha!” moment after we make a connection in our minds. Some of these moments give us more of a tingly feeling than others and we just get so giddy and excited.

I had studied Aviation, Psychology, Communication, and Design Thinking, each at different universities. As I paid attention to how I felt, I made connecting insights in each of these areas that led me to pursue a Business degree at BYU.

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!

Truli Wright
Hometown:
Grants Pass, Oregon

My Story:
I thought I wanted to major in psychology when I started college, but after my mission, I asked myself, “Is psychology really the major I want, or just the only major I know about?” I felt lost.

After taking unique classes within the Spanish and Middle Eastern Studies areas that sparked my interest. I wanted to apply what I learned thus far in a practical way, so I decided to investigate Communications Disorders as a major, and I loved it!

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.
