Trust me your first day starting a new school, especially secondary school, is always going to be scary no matter who you are. There's only one bit of advice that I can give you and that is to be yourself and I know everyone says this but it’s true. Now having said that remember no one knows you, they don’t know if you were loud, bossy, shy or polite in your old school. It’s a completely new start. You can be whoever you want to be. If there are aspects of your personality that maybe you didn't like then this is your chance to change that. I don't mean change everything about you and act like someone you’re not because who wants to go around pretending to be someone else. What I’m saying is, this is your chance to be who you want to be. If you've always been quiet and you’re fed up of always blending into the background then this is your chance to act confident. If you're at a new school then no one will know any different if you start acting confident they'll think you've always been like that.
Just remember starting at a new school is like being given a fresh canvas, the possibilities are endless. Take this scary experience and turn it in to something incredible, take control. XX
