Letter to my Past Self

Photo of Jessie wearing a University of Massachusetts tshirt and text reading: Dear High School Self, Don't Stress too much ultimately you'll end up loving where you go, and it'll work out in the end. I know change can be really scary but it'll be a lot easier than you think!

Right now you’re busy with preparing for the next step in your life: filling out scholarship applications, revisiting your top schools, watching videos on how to prepare for college, and deciding on where to spend your next four years. Take a deep breath, try not to stress too much, because I’m here to assure you everything is going to work out. 

You’re probably really stressed right now about the college decision process, as you don’t want to make the “wrong” choice. Ultimately you’ll end up loving where you go, and it’ll work out in the end. I know change can be really scary but it’ll be a lot easier than you think!
