Be a pain – in a good way.
You want me to BE A PAIN?
That’s right! Tell everyone you know that you want to go to college. Tell your parents, relatives, teachers, school counselor, coach, mentor, youth group leader…you get the idea. Ask them to help guide you to college – and keep asking until you find someone who will!
