“If I try, I will succeed.”


POSITIVE SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS: With parents, teachers, relatives, neighbors and peers who mentor a youth, are supportive and show they care

FEELINGS OF COMPETENCE: In academics, athletics, the arts or other areas, based on their past successes and notable achievements

“My study time really paid off during finals.”
