It was 6:30 in the morning when Sapphire woke up. She could not have been more excited to be finally going to her dream school, Columbia. Although Sapphire loved living in Boston, she could not wait to experience all that Manhattan had to offer. She had always been the best at everything, and Sapphire was thrilled to finally be challenged. She was an excellent runner and was planning on running the New York Marathon in early November. She had her heart set on making her mark on Manhattan, and living life to the fullest. Sapphire knew that being in New York meant that she was one step closer to having her dreams come true. She had always aspired to be a writer, but knew that the best publishers and editors lived in New York. Additionally, she was fluent in French, and was planning on studying abroad in France. She had spent her summers growing up in France with her father, but now she wanted to study in France, and perhaps even get an internship there. Being a smart, sassy girl from Boston, Sapphire knew she would fit in just perfectly at Columbia. She was majoring in Creative Writing, and French and Francophone Studies. She knew having a double major would be difficult, but Sapphire was not one to turn down a challenge. In fact, all through high school she had wished she had been challenged more.
