“My school gives us opportunities and the confidence to speak up and choose our own path, like with class registration, and then they support those opinions and choices. If I need extra help because I’m struggling with a class or with organizing my classwork, my school helps me create a system that works best for me. I get to choose the best way to make changes for myself, and they support me within those choices. All of these things make it easier to participate and be present in school, because I can do it as my honest self and my school shows me how to succeed from there.” — Briar
