In this episode, juniors Sofia Ayala and Erica Deutsch discuss the stigma behind receiving bad grades and how failure is a good thing that can lead to success. “I think there are a lot of people, in high school, especially, who feel an immense amount of pressure to do their best in everything, including academics,” Deutsch said. “We hope to bring awareness to the fact that it is okay to fail, despite the outside influences that tell us it’s not. If we learn to grow from our failures, they can turn into our greatest achievements.”
