My senior year of high school was challenging. Applying for college was difficult because I did not know much about the process and I did not have much help from my counselors.
At first I did not know what to study so it was hard to pin point where I wanted to go. Once I had that down it was easier. Also, it was hard to tell my mom I was leaving and having her understand it was my choice and not that I was leaving her because I didn’t want to be with her.
My grades were even a bigger challenge but thanks to my extra curricular activities, my application stood out. Then came the financial burden, I wanted to go away but in reality I could not really afford it. But I got some extra government help and a scholarship that made it easier for me to go away.
There are hurdle that you’ll all face but there is no problem that can not be solved. There will always be a solution to your hurdle and it will all be worth it at the end when you get your college degree.
