Figuring out how you’re going to pay for college can be extremely stressful.

But before you hit the panic button, remember this:

Everything will be okay in the end.
If it’s not okay,
it’s not the end.

Don’t quit before you reach your goals.

You’re so close.

I believe in you and your abilities to pay for college with scholarships.

I know that at times it can seem like nothing is working out in your favor.

It’s only a test to see how bad you want it.

How committed you are to the process.

How determined you are to succeed.

How confident you are in…your own abilities.

Prove them wrong.

Use your doubters and critics as fuel for your dreams.

Earn your first or next scholarship.

Celebrate your success.
