Balance is important, and checking in with yourself will give you the balance you need to evaluate your steps moving forward. Growing up can be intimidating, but continuing to have faith that you can do it and that it will all work out will bring about a sense of peace.

Look at the people who have believed in you since you began this journey – they are there to provide you with guidance and a shoulder to lean on it when you need it. Pedro Jimenez, class of 2005, reminded us on Facebook that “You are are part of this great community that did not let their obstacles handicap them for success in life and education.” Great advice, Pedro!
So close your eyes, take a deep breath, and ask yourself “How am I doing today?”
