A simple message to those who need a winkle and a smile, followed by the words, “You can do it!” It’s midnight and I’m sitting in my study room, staring at a Physiology textbook called Molecular Biology of the Cell with a green highlighter and ruler placed on top of it. and I have one more set of study notes to make before my quiz tomorrow. I’ve realised that feeling prepared boosts my confidence in that moment when I walk into an exam room.
My advice: “Leave your nerves at the door, and don’t let it get the best of you.”
Yours truly, from a 21-year-old girl who’s learning how to master self-confidence one step at a time.
