Just be yourself and everything will work out for the best. Its hard to think that when you are going to start college. And if college isn't for you then it was an experience and something that tou can say you did


Throughout high school I wanted to become a Physical Therapist. That was my ultimate passion and goal. But I noticed that I couldn’t keep up with the challenging workload. So I struggled though the whole semester. When I received my finial grade I did terrible. Now that I’m in college I would advise myself its okay to challenge yourself but make sure it’s realistic.


If I could go back in time, I would have become more involved in sports, and school based organizations. When you have a learning disability, you don't fit in groups you'd like to join...or at least you don't think you fit. I would have had more confidence in myself and not get caught up in the "I probably won't shine in "that" either syndrome." I would have listened to my mother (my dad died of cancer when I was twelve), and my high school principal with more interest. They paved a road for me and I would often take the dirt path. There is a certain amount of socialization that takes place in high school that prepares you for college. I cut myself short in that area.
