I wish I knew that college is a great opportunity to grow more as an independent individual. I kind of knew this going in to college, but never took full advantage of it.

Other Advice/Information

I think that joining in on extracurricular activities in high school is a great opportunity to practice for college. You have the opportunity to network a lot in college and being part of clubs and sports will help create social and career opportunities for later. Also, just pay attention to what you're passionate about in life. There's a job out there that will fit your passion, and there is a pathway for you to find that job.
