“What I am most looking forward to in 2018 is building myself back up and doing something with my college career. I went away to York College in Pennsylvania, but I struggled with depression and I was going through a really hard time. I ended up coming back home to my family and it was hard adjusting at first. But my family was really nice and heart warming and that helped a lot.
“I go to Ocean County College now. It was very hard and disappointing not stay at the college I was going to, but my best friend wound up coming home the same semester I did, and she and I are actually doing really well for ourselves now. We are working hard, going to college, and I have my family’s support, so I feel like I am on track.”
