Graduate, Live, Celebrate is a collection of advice-based essays inspired by high school seniors investigating the legacy they want to leave behind following their graduation. Written for incoming freshmen at The Global Learning Collaborative in New York, this publication allows the GLC’s class of 2018 to reflect on their time as students, share their insider knowledge on how to navigate a new school, and offer their thoughts on how new students can make the most of their time in high school.
