Section 4. Learning (con’t)
Throughout my four years at the Univer

important thing: learning does not end once
you graduate high school or university,
it is a continuous facet of life that
should never be ignored but embraced.
I am sure that I learn something new every day. It may not be life altering; it may be something so minute that I missed the fact that I learned it. For example, each day in my anatomy class I learn how the human body works. Monday, I didn’t know that each vein doesn’

I have also learned that there ar
