To sum up, my experience of realizing the mindsets that existed and understanding they have helped my academic journey not only a bit more a lot. From hating school to liking it is a change and it’s brought me to now even have a dream to go to a university that I never even thought I would be able to go to. The doubts are what makes me want to get better and stronger.
