I am senior in high school, and I will be attending a Cal State University in the fall. It’s definitely been a journey, both emotionally and academically. Deciding which school would be a right fit for me, has definitely been a challenge. Recently, the editors of Seventeen Magazine released a new book entitled Seventeen: College Goals, an insiders guide to finding and getting into a school you’ll love. Upon reading it, I am in awe with the resources it provides. It gives me the tools to take on University in terms of study hacks, self care, sex, adulting, drugs and alcohol prevention.
My parents have always stressed the importance of education. After my SAT and ACT prep classes, my mother would feed me and show me how to make protein packed wraps, chicken noodle soup, tofu and other Pinterest worthy meals to prepare me for college. At each of these meals, she would teach me something new that she felt would be vital to my college experience. She would even talk about topics that are considered taboo in my Hispanic culture.
SEVENTEEN: COLLEGE GOALS is NOW available in stores!

With SATs, ACTs, AP courses, and studying this school year has been just a little insane!
As a very anxious student, I have only known a few self-care coping mechanisms:
2. Binge on junk food
3. Watch 500 Days of Summer until my little brother tackles me for the remote
After reading Seventeen Magazine tips, I realize how unhealthy these coping mechanisms are, and how I can better my life with simple things such as eating healthy, maintaining a sleeping schedule, and taking care, and loving my body!
This school year is BIG for me, and I am both excited and nervous at the same time. I have so much on my mind. I am thrilled that I now have an all- in- one journal/guide to place my thoughts, dreams, and goals!
This incredible book makes a great birthday, graduation, and or a just cuz gift!
I’m counting down the days to graduation!
When I start attending Cal State, I think I will be slightly more at ease with this book. Not having my mom around will definitely be a struggle as she truly is my best friend, my mentor, and my biggest supporter. This little book will help me organize my thoughts, help with decision making, and reassure me that this is only the beginning of my future…
