Don’t change for anyone. Find friends who you know will be there for you no matter what and who will help you study for finals. Don’t get caught up in the drama and don’t go picking fights. If something happens that, like someone is harassing you, or bullying you tell someone (an adult). Stick up for what u believe in. Love yourself and don’t let people belittle you.
I may only be in 5th grade right now, but I have some advice. Don’t get into or start any drama. I know ppl who have done that, and they are miserable. Also, make sure you have a pretty decent sized friend group. Friends help you through a lot! Ya, you can go to parties and stuff if you want to, but don’t sacrifice your grades for it! You still need to study!
