,College readiness is an important topic that we can all learn about through the experiences of others who have made the transition to college. There will always be bumps in the road to college, as it is a huge life transition for any student. But some students will have more challenges than others. How each student while in college will navigate their challenges will differ depending upon their needs and circumstances. It is my hope that students while in high school will take the time to build their readiness skills, and particularly their ability to know when they need help and feel comfortable asking for help in a timely way. This skill of self-advocacy can make a big difference in the college experience. This article is a reflection from a writer who found her unique path to managing the college experience. It took her time to find the right learning environment, but when she was able to experience academic success, she was on her way. The goal is to find the right path for every student to find success in a way that is meaningful to them.
