What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


If I could go back in time and speak to myself as an Indio High School senior, the most important advice I could give myself is, "Be confident, be determined." Like every other student before me I'm sure, my career goals changed constantly. I was so used to being told what to do and how to do it, that when the decision was finally up to me, I was at a loss. Every teen believes that he/she knows all there is to know and have all the answers to every question. They make a decisions and live with the consequences later. I was no exception to the rule until I realized that my fate was in my own hands. Failure was my biggest fear because if I made the decision, then I would be responsible for the outcome. I second guessed every decision and talked myself out of so many great opportunities. If I would have known then, what I know now, I would know that success is inevitable when you are confident in your decision and determined to see it through.
