Everyone was talking about going to college and I was like, “Oh, I can’t do that.”
I thought that I was not college material.
Everybody had told me I’d be able to succeed. It was mind boggling at first.
Figure out how to apply for loans. Figure out how to apply for scholarships.
How to take the SATs, where to take them.
If I wanted to stay in-state or out-of-state.
It was really kind of daunting.
I don’t think that they realize how much money is out there to help you.
We ended up finding like, enough scholarships for me to be able to go to school and not even have to pay the money back.
I just needed a push to get up there and do things myself.
I faced challenges getting in to college. You’re going to face challenges, but you can go.
You can go. You can go. If I can do it, you can do it. You can go.
I want you to know that you can go, too.
You can go. You can go.
