Letter to the Editor: Evolve as a person after graduating

Mantua resident Rochelle Barragan wrote the following Letter to the Editor encouraging graduates to embrace changes.

Don’t try to hang onto the life you had in high school or even the person you were. If you feel like you’re becoming a new person, as long as you’re not toxic, let it happen. Those who peak in high school are boring afterwards.

Leave your home state and don’t feel like you need to start college right away, or even at all.

Live before you’re drowning in debt, with babies and no time.
