My name is Katelyn Fritts. I believe that a human experience is different for
each person. To me, the human experience is something that fulfills you and makes
you wonder or reflect on something. For me, a human experience is that feeling I get
when the sun shines through the trees and aluminates the leaves. This semester has
played a part in my own personal path in many ways. I choose my career path,

member of a University Writing Class, and a freshman, for the very last time in my

day, I can make a difference in a childs life. However, the future isnt predictable;
you can only make the most of what is thrown at you. When life gives you lemons
