Hi everyone!

My name is Asia Woods and welcome to my blog “To the Girl Who Never Thought She Could.” As the oldest child and grandchild, I didn’t have any non-familial role models that looked like who I would grow up to be, a Black woman. Consequently, I made a lot of guesses and got a LOT wrong. In this blog, I will share my experiences and give my former self advice. My goal is to inform, encourage, and provide support to those who feel alone or misunderstood. Hopefully, it will shed light on some of the rarely mentioned aspects of life, college, etc.

Just Asia

First week as fresh meat I started my freshman year of high school on a Wednesday. I don’t remember too much about the first day (so it was either uneventful or so traumatizing that I blocked it out o
