Think about it  you're a person and a high school student. Translation? You're so much more than a GPA and a test score.

As a high school student, your experiences and accomplishments play a big role in your college application. But they don't tell the whole story.

But wait. Give yourself the gift of time to explore who you are as a person, first.

Find a special place that inspires to you to write. Set a timer for 20 minutes, if that helps you focus. Background music? That's your call.
