Back-to-School Tips

The first weeks of a new school year is an exciting time because it's a fresh start. It's also an opportunity to make a good first impression. Of course, you hear a lot about making a good impression with your looks—your clothes, hair, etc. But did you know there are many other factors that contribute to first impressions? Here are a few tips for putting your best foot forward the first week of school. Smile! Something as simple as a smile can let new students know you'd like to be friends. It can also let friends you haven't seen in a while know you're still the nice, friendly girl they remember from last year. Hold Your Head High and Shoulders Back. If you look confident even when you don't feel confident, others will pick up on it and feel more comfortable around you. Eventually, you might even start to feel more confident, too! Be Friendly to Everyone! You can never have too many friends. So even if you already have a good group of friends, challenge yourself to make more. Walk up to someone you don't know well, look her in the eye and say. "It's good to see you again! How was your summer?" Do you have any back-to-school tips to share?
