The transition to college is a theme that has come up on our podcast again and again. It has been the source of the most difficult times for Alé and myself. On the third episode of Dream Chasers and Change Makers, we shared our stories of simultaneously transferring to the University of Miami . It was a serendipitous meeting of deep connection! Our roads to applying and transferring to UM had been chock full of heart break, trauma, and mental health battles. Our transitions from high school to college were troublesome for the both of us. The obstacles we endured proved to be challenging for out mental well being. In the episode we revealed the most difficult details to our listeners.
After Episode 3 began streaming, we received an out pouring of love. So many friends and people who I have not met in person reached out to thank me for my honesty. Also, they told me they related and shared their similar experiences. I heard from countless people who had a difficult transitions from high school to college. (Some who took other paths other than college too!) The years after high school graduation are such important rite-of-passage.
