On being 18: It was scary and exciting. I was a freshman in college. It was the first time I was away from home. I had never been to camp. I was trying to make friends. Trying to make my way around the school system, and study. Exciting and scary is the simplest way to put it.
Nancy’s advice to her 18 year old self: Go away from home before that. Whether it’s camp or some other program. Learn. Take studying at school more seriously in high school so that you’re a little more prepared. Somehow, I’m not sure how, be more confident. I was not very confident as a teenager, young adult. I grew into that, into my skin, over the years.
