She’s Human Too

I came from a Jesuit all-boys school in Detroit with nine of my classmates. Though I have a sister and have interacted with women before, it was mostly at social events such as dances and football games. I never really understood how females think. I would quickly come to realize what it is like interacting with them in and outside of the classroom.  At first I felt overwhelmed by the sheer number of females at Loyola. I felt that there was no way I would be able to have the “we are a band of brothers” lifestyle that I had at my high school.

I was truly mistaken. Not only was I able to keep close male friends, I realized that women are looking to make friends just like I was. I quickly began to make female friends. In fact, these female friendships have taught me many things as well. Things such as not putting hashtags in your Instagram caption, wearing a tee shirt and joggers every day is not okay, and you better not be the one who breaks the snap streak. I have enjoyed my time here at Loyola so far and have been grateful for the friends I have made and the advice I have received.

Through these everyday interactions, I also learned things about myself that I would have never discovered. Never in a million years would I have thought I would have a job that had to do with posting on social media. While my appreciation for photography and fine art has grown immensely, I haven’t lost any of my old interests. I still love playing football and I still love basketball. I have been here for two years and I look forward to see what else Loyola has in store for me. If there is one thing that every guy should know, it’s that women are human too.

  1. I know people whose experience is the other way round. I have a friend who grew up with five sister and he literally didn’t how to interact with the guys. This was in high school boarding school and it took him quite sometime. But its interesting how our environment shapes us.
