Aniya Cox is sure she wants to be a dermatologist. What she's been less sure about is what she needs to do to get there — she's just 16, a sophomore at Eastern Senior High School in Washington, D.C.
She can remember, at various points of the past two years, desperately trying to navigate all that's required to graduate high school and get into college.
"I was all over the place, I was frustrated," Cox said. "I didn't know what I needed to do."
Cox said even the process of asking her teachers for advice — and finding time to meet with them — was confusing.
