My parents did not attend college. I went through high school without a clear plan on what to do, and by senior year, I had no clue where to find a college application, let alone how to apply. In spite of this, I was admitted to my first choice school. How, you ask? I was lucky enough to have a TEAM of Supporters, Cheerleaders, and Believers.
The truth is, teens spend more hours at school than anywhere else. Who we encounter determines how we are influenced. While many teens can and do forge through this college admission process on their own, it is 1000 times better when they can draft a TEAM of Supporters and unshakable group of friends early on.
