To me, in high school, I was that person that would let others be the leaders. But college has let me develop those leadership skills.

All the fears that will come up in your mind, they’re just fears. Once you act upon that fear and say I’m greater than that, you will overcome, and just make that step, and say you’re going to do it.
Definitely go for it. College is such a great experience and most people that I’ve heard of that didn’t go at first, they usually go back and it’s a lot easier when you get out of high school and it’s fresh on your mind.
If you’re thinking about [going back to college], and like I said, I thought about it for two years, and I came up with every excuse in the book not to go. But if you’re willing and that’s what you want to do, you should go for it.
