If I could go back in time and give my high school senior self advice, I would tell her that there is no future in not attending college, that there are ways to pay for it, and you will never regret it, do not let the ignorance of others stop you from being what you have always wanted to be, a teacher. I would say that if you do not get your college education, you will spend the next 30 years in poverty, your child will live in poverty and so will your grandchild, stop it from happening and get that education!
I would honestly tell myself to go right to college.. To not take time off and try to raise a family. To put school first and everything else behind that. That without a proper Education you will struggle through life possibly working in a dead end job. I would also tell myself to depend on no one else to help you through life and to remember that only you and your education will help you succeed with the goals that you set for you in life. These are the things that I would have told myself, not that I would have listened but its what i would say now.
