The most important thing I have learned is to never give up. At Breakthrough, they push you to your limits and then go beyond that. Even if you are struggling a lot with something they make sure that you have a support system that allows you to keep going. You know that there are no bounds or limits to what you can do.
Breakthrough will help me become a better person and student overall. I will be kinder because Breakthrough has a more friendly atmosphere than my school. At Breakthrough, we believe in academic success, but we don’t compete with each other. Breakthrough doesn’t compare people, rather it supports people.
Breakthrough taught me that there are many skills that you need to master beyond academics in order to reach your goals. Things like communication skills, emailing, and presenting yourself in a professional manner are all definitely important.
Being at Breakthrough for three years has given me a shine and a boost in all subjects now that I am in high school. If I hadn’t gone to Breakthrough, I would be a really shy girl. Breakthrough has given me that space to feel comfortable and confident. I feel I can speak up in my classes in high school.
