    In September I'm going to either go to college or sixth form depending on my results.

    I'm taking fashion & design at college. I'm really worried about going to college/sixth form. I'm worried about falling behind in class, not being as good as everyone else and making friends. In the college interview the other girls seemed so dedicated to fashion. I do love fashion passionately but the other girls were acting like fashion is there reason to live or something.

    In every new environment of people there's always division and I usually end up by myself. I left secondary school without any friends. How can I change this. I'm starting to think that I'm a horrible person. I used to be very outgoing & confident but I've lost a lot of confidence since secondary school. People generally don't like me.

    trust me, most of them don't 'live' for fashion. It was either something they constructed to sound interesting at school or to impress the new teachers.
    My best advice is be yourself BUT push yourself as well. Smile more, strike up conversations with strangers, tell that joke you wanted to say and share the hobby that you won't admit to. Ask people questions, even if you think you know the answer this builds the persons trust of you, making it more likely fir friendships to form.

    At the beginning of college, first impresssions are important and everyone is looking to make new friends, take advantage of it!
