"UNHS has taught me that I have the capacity to set goals and manage my time effectively."Jennifer
Jennifer advises students who are balancing schoolwork and a time-consuming extracurricular activity to be flexible in making their goals.
“I would start by setting practical goals, both short-term and long-term, which have measureable results,” she said. “Allow them to grow and change as you gain experience and your perspective changes.”
