Student Nomination Story

I had just moved from Indiana to Michigan. I didn't know anyone or the school. I really didn't want to be there and I hated the fact that I moved so late in school. I was scared I wasn't gonna pass any classes and that I was gonna fail out. She was there to listen. For a long time I had so much to say about everything and no one to talk to but she listened. I have? Sd? some problems at home and she was the first per?tson ?to listen to me and hear me out and not make me feel like how I was feeling was wrong. She didn't tell me that other people have it worst than me so I should be fine. I never realized I had so much to say till somebody finally listened. I am so grateful that she gave me a safe space she gave me somewhere I felt comfortable with. Without her I wouldn't be in the place I am today.
