Talent, skills and good grades can carry students far, but self confidence might just be the most important quality for students going to college. Heading off to college can be such an intimidating time for young people, even students who appear to have it all together. My grandson, who was top in his class in high school, had his fair of struggles last year as a college freshman. The newness of it all was a little overwhelming for him, causing him stress and migraine headaches.
My granddaughter Becca is a year away from heading off to college, and a few of her good friends from varsity cheer have already gone. College is a time of change. I want Becca to have the self confidence she needs to be successful at college, and am doing my best to prepare her. I am glad to partner with Schick® to share some ways to boost your confidence at college.
College is a time of change and marks a period of new beginnings. We all want to feel good, clean and confident as we enter new stages and Schick® Razors are here to accompany you on the journey!
Last week, we went to Walmart to purchase college care package items for one of Becca’s good friends, Cassie, who is a freshman this year.
We shopped for essentials that will help give Cassie the confidence she needs as a college freshman. A good disposable razor like Schick® Quattro For Women® or the Schick® Hydro Silk® Razor is a must for convenience and confidence. College is such a busy time and she’ll need the tools necessary to get the job done an move on.
Realizing you’re not alone is another way to boost your confidence at college. We want Cassie to know that we are here for her, cheering her on, and encouraging her to make some new friends on campus. I hope this care package helps her to feel loved and I hope she’ll realize any uncertainty she has is normal. Other students feel the same way as her.
A strong support system can help college students find the motivation and confidence to tackle even the toughest challenges. Support from family, friends, and mentors is so important during this transition.
Something I recall from my own experience as an adult student is that it’s a good idea to take at least one class in something you’re good at. It’s a great confidence booster. Each semester, in spite of the requirements and courses you need for your major, try to take at least one course you enjoy and will likely do well in. If you are struggling at some of your other courses, you’ll have this one class to boost your confidence.
