This. So much this.

One of my Shakes students quit school last year and decided to go back this year. Today she posted this:

I was meant for school but adapted to the streets.
Didn’t even have a home, stayed in a few traps, tried to make ends meet.
Now I feel like a jackass, a high school drop out.
But I’m going back to school to prove I’m more than what people talk about.

So proud of this girl!
