I recently went to see my nephew graduate. He is a very smart kid, he knows how to survive something most kids on college campus dont know. I know he will doing great at what ever he chooses to do. I wrote him a letter, and i would lilke to share with you all. He is an only child. durring Covid he rebuilt his on Classic Car. Support for our younger youth needs to be strong. This young man and many like him do not have socialist media. My parents Came from Cuban in the 60's so he learned the evil of socialism. Here is the letter i wrote him

We remember when you were only a couple of months old, and we held you in our arms, it was such a special time for us to watch you grow from then. Now 18yrs later, you are on your way to college. As you make these step into the next chapter of your life. Do not ever forget your Father, your Mother, Grandma, Grandpa, Me and your Auntie are so very proud of you. We will always be here for you. To help counsel you thru the next chapter of your life. We have been where you are going. If you ever need someone to talk to, we are always here for you. Always remember this family sticks together, through thick or thin we will always be here for you.

Congrats on this day.

We just had our award assembly today. Graduating class is about 55 kids. 25 have scholarships to colleges or tech schools, some are tens of thousands, some are only $1000, but that's something. It's neat that the younger kids can see what is available with a little effort.

It's also nice being able to get that last chance to shake a kid's hand and remind them that you are there for them if they need to talk or whatever. We missed that last year.

Not all kids now a-days think the way the News Media wants you to think they do. It all depends on many factors.....

WHEN the older boy was graduating, they had one of those awards things.
Best student for Science..called my kid up
he goes back down to his seat, something else then
best student for Social Science..called my kid up
he starts to go back to his seat then the School super says, "why don't you just stay up here."
says something else then
best student in math.. he is already up there
Super goes, "lets get this over with"...starts reading off all the acceptances and scholarships offered from all the colleges he applied for. 3 schools offered a complete free ride for his academics. He chose the school that offered the smallest Michigan Tech in the UP. BIG tuition bills. SO.. his sophomore year he is approached to play football(he was an offensive lineman in HS.) Tells them no thanks he is into his education..tuition is HIGH. They finally offer him a full free ride to come out and play.(he was BIG and STRONG and the coaches had seen the tapes of his HS playing. plus he was friends with half the team and worked out with them in the gym, so they really knew who he was )
He asked us if he could turn it down because he thought education was more important. What do you say to that?..except say yes and then go cry where he can't hear you.

4 years later,,,
younger son is at graduation awards
School super goes... we have another one.. calls the kid up and gives him awards for Art, Science, Biology, reads off all the scholarship and colleges, It is a small school in the greater scheme of things, everyone knows everyone, Super calls on me and the wife to stand up. Asks, if there are any more coming or can the rest of the kids have some of the awards now?

Both graduate Magna honors from their engineering program. The younger boy was awarded a prize and mention as being deemed the best computer engineering student for that year in the whole school.

Proud of any kid who can do all that, you bet.

Kids when they turn out great really make all the work and effort as a PARENT/guardian/relative all worth while.

In order to go to school in 2021, you need to be psychologically prepared for a large number of loads that will appear there, because the transition from online learning to offline learning does not always happen very quickly and efficiently. It is also very important to read helpful resources to help you learn. For example, on the site edubirdie.com/blog/research-paper-introduction you can read an interesting and rather constructive article on how to write an introduction to research paper.
I absolutely agree with you. Very deep thoughts that respond within me.

It sounds like your family did right by him and he took the opportunity to better himself. Good job, and be ready to be there for him when he starts to doubt himself. Starting out in life can be difficult and college can be challenging even at the best of times.
