My Business Law teacher told me that we tend to look away from the source of our problems and anxiety. I guess that’s why when people yell at us, we don’t look them in the eyes. And that’s why when we’re given an opportunity to change, most of us don’t take it because we fear failure. But failure is what helps us grow and teaches us the lessons to better ourselves. To all rising seniors, don’t be afraid to apply to the colleges and programs you want to because you lack certain skills, or fear rejection. Because out of the thousands of “No’s” you get, someone is bound to say “Yes”. Believe me, I’m talking from experience. And not just college, take that as a life lesson and apply to yourself.
