Rayna "By helping adolescents to define themselves based on their own talents and a valuable self-worth instead of trying to meet someone else’s expectations, we can build students' confidence and academic success.

This intricate balance can be achieved through increasing the availability and visibility of positive role models, advocating for participation in extracurricular activities, and educating students about goal setting and having high expectations for themselves.."
