Q. If you were to give advice for surviving high school to your little brother, what would you tell him?
“I would say ‘Don’t come in acting like you’re all that and be open to your friends and ask a lot of questions. Because from middle school to here is completely different. For middle school you have a lot of friends and you could be known as ‘popular’ but when you come here it’s completely different because you start from the bottom again. There are older peers that you have to look up to and they’ve been through more than you so don’t act like you know more than they do’.”
