What may seem like a giant leap for those of us with a couple of years to go is the next step for many of our fellow students graduating this semester. Although stepping into the unknown might seem scary, trust that you’ve been prepared with the skills necessary to thrive in whatever you choose to do after graduation. Here’s what some of our Soka seniors see as their next steps!

Nellie Hultman is currently a sophomore at Soka University of America where she is studying Social and Behavioral Sciences. She is the Campus Correspondent for the Her Campus chapter at Soka. After living in 6 countries, she has developed a love for traveling, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and trying new foods (lots of it). She hopes to continue traveling the world throughout her life. She plans to attend law school after college, and she desires to build a life focused on inspiring, empowering, and serving others. When she’s not doing homework or thinking about ways to change the world, you can find her researching unsolved crimes, singing in the car, watching Seinfeld… or eating.
