Nowadays, high school is TOUGH. Times HAVE changed.
Every year I see stressed, discouraged, uninspired students who have a lot to deal with. A lot of it surrounds home life balance and support structures. Students have non-school stuff going on that they rarely tell others about- family issues, relationships, mental health, relocations, and more.
Many times you’re forced into adulthood sooner than expected. You could have chosen to pack up and quit, but you didn’t. You saw it through.
High school is our first major LIFE exam, and the best news is… you passed! What you learned in the last few years of high school will significantly influence the person you’ll become tomorrow. YOU can, and will make a difference. Congratulations! And WELL DONE.
