The Perfect High School Graduation Gift
The Black Girl's Guide To College Success is the perfect book to give for a highschool graduation gift
By: Sheryl Walker
The Black Girl’s Guide To College Success: What No One Really Tells You About College That You Must Know by Sheryl Walker easily provides readers with all the information they need to know to be successful in college. There are many books that tell students how to get into college, but few that show them how to navigate college successfully once they are actually there. The Black Girl's Guide covers obtaining and maintaining a high GPA beginning first semester freshman year, getting internships, having fun, balancing out relationships and extracurricular activities, and tough issues like combating feelings of inferiority. When a student knows the strategies of success, and how to use them to their benefit, they are guaranteed to save time, money, and stress while navigating college. In fact, once they master the use of the tips presented, your student will quickly and easily get the proven results she deserves by being well equipped prior to taking the leap into college. Whether she is an avid book reader or not, the easy to read “Big Sister to Little sister” tone of this book guarantees she will love it! Life becomes a little easier when you don’t have to figure out EVERYTHING on your own. Millions of black women have graduated from college and have been successful, but having a heads up on how to make it through successfully can only increase the population of black female college graduates. The Black Girl's Guide not only defies the myth that all you have to do is study and get good grades to be successful in college, it leaves you wishing there was a Black Girl's Guide for every stage of life!
"It is a really good read! I like the way it's written because it's like I am talking to you face to face. It's down to earth. It's funny because so much stuff that you wrote are things that I realized much later in college. Things as simple as buy your books ahead of time so that you could get the used copies. As I read I can't help but to smile and nod my head, thinking if someone only told me this before I started college. It definitely will be helpful to many girls." - college graduate
"I have already read the book. I am now starting to read it again and numerous times to soak in steps and lessons that will instill a successful college career. I was so nervous about getting ready for college but thanks to you I am not anymore !!! Thank You so much for spreading the knowledge!" - college freshman
