Summer 2021: Session 171 (How to Bounce Back When Life Gives You Lemons with Tetnika Williamson)

We've all heard this quote and even used it in our essays countless times: "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." But what happens when real tragedy strikes? Understandably, sometimes it's a struggle to see a silver lining when life throws curveballs at you. But I will tell you this; it's crucial that you adapt as quickly as possible and look on the bright side instead of making pointless complaints. I see no point in whining about missed opportunities, past mistakes, and being upset when things do not go our way. Instead of focusing on the "lemons," change your mindset and focus on all the things you can do to salvage the situation. As a first-generation college graduate, I've learned that many different roads can lead to success. The world is full of opportunities; you just have to look a little harder than the rest.
