    I came here hoping to look for motivation. I’m 4 months in school and have 4 and a half months to go in already skipping and I hate that but I don’t know how I’ll get through the next few months. It’s so hard for me especially when hardly anyone in my family has graduated. Plus working is hard at the same time I’ve had covid and I go back Thursday and I’m so nervous.. I’m ready to graduate already bc I’m starting to slow down when I’m so close to the finish line.

    I came here because I am having a hard time dealing with the end of high school, all the lows, the highs. I’ll miss them all, and I’ll miss everyone that mattered. I’ve been so focused on graduating and leaving my country that I forgot what I was leaving behind, I took everything for granted and Thank god I’m realising it now and not too late. I’ve never felt this way before, but i am no stranger to strong emotions. No matter what I trust in god and in my self to take me to where I am supposed to be all while appreciating my past and the people that matter.

    Great talk, I’m so surprised on some of those wide shots where the audience looks invisible.
