The greatest gift I have ever been given is the tools to advocate for myself.
By the time I was ready to graduate high school I unknowingly had learned how to advocate for myself. It was tought in such a way that I wasn’t even aware I had learned it until six months into college. The first time I ran into a minor conflict in the classroom at the college, my safety nets were gone. I had to sink or swim. I chose to swim and never stopped swimming. In fact in my last year of college I was the president of one of the student run groups on campus.
First lesson in self advocacy: ask for help, but when you do, MAKE SURE you really DO need the support.
