I am worried

Worried about what?

College, the place where you get more knowledge.

I worry I won't succeed in the getting the education

I so gratefully need.

I feel so slow, compared to everyone who is ready to go.



Something I'm excited for, but the ongoing pressure

Makes me not want to go anymore.

Everything is about money, money, and even more money

Where do I get all this money from?

A grant, a loan, if I'm lucky a scholarship!

And in the end, I still might be in debt.



Let me at least acknowledge the fact that I am going to


First one in my family to attend a college

I should be proud not scared about going college.

Because you never know.

Of the places you can go

If you go to college
