The Beatles said it best with the words, "I get by with a little help from my friends". If it wasn't for my friends I don't know what I would do! Since I have moved around so much in my life it has been an on going effort to try and keep in touch with all my friends from all over the world! Its hard to leave great friends behind and have to make new ones all over again, but by doing so I have been able to overcome my shyness. I have made amazing friends since moving to Florida. My best friend that I have known for five years, is Amanda (in the picture above)! Amanda is actually the reason why i'm here at the University of Florida today! She's been talking me into applying and moving to Gainesville for three years. This past summer I actually decided to apply...and now here I am! Amanda and I have been through so many laughs and tears through the years and I appreciate her friendship more than she knows.
