What was the hardest part in your transition to college?

The hardest part of transitioning into college was not being home and trying have my mother understand that I needed to put my studies first if I want to make it somewhere. It was a constant struggle to balance my life at home and my life at school and keeping a balance in myself. Not understanding what self care was and how to incorporate into my daily routine is something I understand but still learning how to do it.

What general advice would you give to high school seniors?

Life has a plan even if you don’t know it. Going down the path that you didn’t think or even want to think about doesn’t mean that you won’t end up where you need to be. All in all don’t stress.
