As a high school senior, knowing what I know about college life and making the transition from high school to college, I would read more about grants, scholarships, loans, and any books in reguards to how I can get more money to pay for my education. I would also get to know all classes and their costs for me to attend. I would ask personnel whatif questions in reguards to classes that I do not pass. Not only that , but I would come up with a plan B just in case plan A does not work. It is always important to have more than one plan while in college. These are just a few things that I would do, but I have more to add to this list.
If I could go back and talk to myself, the first thing that I would tell me is to stay focused. I would encourage me to do my best no matter what anyone says. I would tell myself to ask my grandmother if I could live with her so that I would be in a better environment, away from the drugs, alcohol, and arguing. I would encourage me to study hard, because it would pay off in the future. I would also encourage me to set goals, long term and short term, and try my best to stick to the plan. Last but not least, I would tell me that when it's my turn to walk down that runway and accept my diploma, I would walk proudly with my head high.
