Thankfully I was able to find good help from family/ friends, and everything worked out.
Advice for new students: Don’t be shy. Ask for help. Get involved. Starting college is a brand-new start, and you don’t have to be who you were in high school.

No matter what’s on my plate, I always try to take mental breaks, hang out with friends and family, eat regularly, exercise, and get plenty of sleep.
