I would tell myself to not be scared of going to college right after high school. You will do well, you will get over your social anxiety. You will be on your way to becoming what you want to be... a doctor! Do not wait until after you get married or have children. You will enjoy the experience of being a college student and be able to focus on you and your future career. Fifteen years from now, you do not want to regret not going to college. If you go now, you will be able to support yourself on your own and not have to rely on someone else to take care of you. You will have fun, you will succeed, you will enjoy the self esteem that is received from going to college, having a career, and supporting yourself.
If I could go back and speak with my younger self, I would have many things to say. The first being to stop being scared, failure is not the end. Second I would say, stop being rigid about student loans,! It may be debt, but its an investment in your future, and you are worth every penny. Third, I would tell myself to spread my wings, stop being hesitent. Savannah is not the end all be all, there is an entire world waiting to be explored.
