Greyson, Thanks for posting this! I really enjoyed the set-up of this work--the idea of having kids reflect on their experience without the resource of the College Advising Corps. It is interesting how the theme of "being lost" an "overwhelmed" ("trying to open a door without a knob"!) comes across in their statements. There is almost this visceral sense of, "You can't do that--we need them!" that is illuminated for even having them imagine life without this incredibly powerful resource. They almost seem flabbergasted that you would mention it.
Seeing these quotes collected this way visually also allows us to see the power in the student voices you collected.
I am going to keep this idea, having kids reflect on something by imagining the removal of a key resource, in my toolkit--thank you!
