My advice to BVGA students

Do not rush. Do not feel like you do not have your life together because you might not know what you want to do as soon as you leave school. If you are unsure about something, take your time, and explore your options. If you have a particular interest, delve deep into that, research it, and talk to as many people as you can about.


Look after yourself, putting your mental health and physical health first is your priority because nothing will ever be accomplished if you are not mentally and physically able to commit.


Learn that it is okay to say no at times, and to ask for some time and space away from all that is happening around you. You know yourself better than anyone, so make sure you listen to what you want.


Trust yourself. Allow yourself time to grow as an individual, try new things, explore new hobbies, make yourself aware of what is happening around you.


Do not doubt your potential. Trust me when I say, you can do anything you ever wanted, as long as you are determined and have faith.
