“Nothing is guaranteed in life, as it is truly unpredictable. One can never be too prepared. Specifically, to be emotionally ready for life after high school in a career or in college, sets the most beneficial platform for success through hard work and determination. This builds non-cognitive skills, which are equally as important as intellectual skills because no matter the circumstances of employment, it is necessary to be able to provide for and support oneself.”
