 My time in middle school are some years I’ll never forget. And some I will forget. But as an 11 year old, starting middle school was so scary for me. The school work was hard, the pressure to get from class to class in 2 minutes or get detention was overwhelming, and my mental health situation became very prominent during middle school.

I remember the first time I ever felt what I thought was “anxiety”. I was a junior in high school and was taking the SAT for the third time. I thought I was pretty good at school until receiving my scores from the first test which made me doubt myself and my abilities to get into my top choices for college.
