Things I Love About My Job: Talking to Seniors

On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to talk to the seniors at my high school about college. If you know me, you know that if there is one thing I love talking about, it is college. Rather, I love motivating others to give college, and themselves, a chance.

Normally the seniors at my high school are disrespectful snots, but I was so pleased with the amount of curiosity they had regarding the college application process. Although a fraction of the class wasn't planning on applying to school (I know, I made them close their eyes and raise their hands), I still tried my best to motivate them to at the very least apply.

I told them all about scholarships and how I believed that college was accessible and could be made to be free if you tried hard enough and had just enough luck. I got to share my beliefs about the system and answer their questions.

Nothing beats the feeling, I tell you!
