“This is one of the most acknowledged reasons for people to seek higher education. However, many young people aren’t sure what they want to do – and that’s okay.Having goals is great, but nothing says that we need to have our lives totally planned out by the age of 17. In fact, many major universities encourage incoming students not to select an area of focus until after their freshman year, or in some cases, their sophomore year. So, even if you’re not sure what profession you’re interested in pursuing, you should remain mindful that academic environments offer one of the best places to explore your options and make that choice.”

Fraser added: “The moment that changed me though was sitting in the interview to repeat fifth form.

Why yuh nuh go get a cutlass and go chop bush?” Her words angered me, and it was only my mother’s hand on my knee that calmed me enough to get in. I was about to tell her things a student should never tell a teacher.”
