stories to uplift a parent of a college freshman who didn’t have the smoothest first semester. I’ve seen the most amazing comeback stories! I love those stories the most because students could’ve given up on school and life but they didn’t! 🙌🏿 We’ve got to tell our stories more so folks don’t feel so alone. We need to talk about it all, the successes and the struggles. Hope is found in our stories! People do very distructive things when there is no #hope
Ashamed, embarrassed, and alone, students typically only share that they’ve been lonely, depressed, isolated, homesick, unmotivated and depressed towards the end of semester 😓🤧 The colleges can’t help if we don’t know what’s going on, also there’s FERPA and HIPPA laws we can’t break.
College is hard all by itself but with #mentalhealth
and other #stressfactors
, it makes college life even harder. Most students are thriving but some are barely surviving. That’s who I works with daily.
We focus so much on how to get into college but what about the specific tips and strategies on how to thrive in college, BEFORE students get to college? That’s why I started my business to make a difference.
