First things first: Uni is SO for you. Sure, life in care might have sometimes been a bit crappy. You might have moved schools a lot, felt lonely and a bit unsure of yourself . But that's exactly what makes uni worth doing. A degree will help you build a great future for yourself, a life where YOU are in control.
Here are a few other reasons why you should go:
Uni allows you to make your own decisions and create options for your future. It might seem a bit scary at first, but you will never ever regret doing it. Plus, you'll learn magical things like cooking, budgeting and assembling Ikea furniture in the process.
2. It isn't *that* hard
Look, like all new things, uni will have its challenges. But there is NO WAY it's harder than what you've already been through. You know you can do it because you have made it this far!
3. Ca$h monaAy
You are much more likely to be living it large one day. Seriously, there is no better way to create financial security than pursuing higher education. Someone with a university degree is likely to earn over $1 million more over their lifetime than a person who does not finish year 12. We aren't mathematicians over here but that's a lot of snacks.
4. You'll actually be interested in what you are learning
At school, you have no say about what you get to do, but at uni, you do. From graphic design to IT to nursing to law, the possibilities are endless.
5. You'll make friends for life
All kinds of people go to uni. You are guaranteed to find your tribe.
You will have access to lots of support to help get you there - and stay there. Why not take advantage of it?
7. There is a preeetty good chance you will go down in history
