I was wondering if anybody has any tips in regards to doing online classes. I’m the only girl in a class full of boys who I’m not really friends with. It sounds silly but I already get anxious with having real classes with them but online makes it 10x worse for some strange reason. If anybody had any tips to help me get myself out of this silly mindset that would be great. Thanks!

I was in a class with all boys- tho in yr 13 so no online classes. I found being friends with one or two or even acquaintances made it easier- are there any you used to talk to at all? otherwise just standing your ground a bit and being confident in your work as a whole!

what subject is it ?

Thank you for this! It’s history. I love it but it can just be intimidating, especially since all the boys are friends :/

I know! It’s irrational thinking but it still freaks me out.

I had a friend in the exact same situation- but she was quite happily outspoken.

and I know it's hard but if they're all friends then hopefully they can't be too judgemental!! and they'll be willing to help you if you struggle with a topic ! hopefully, going back to school will help- since it's nearly september, I hope you can feel less anxious

You go into there with confidence! Strut your stuff and don’t care what anyone says because you do you! 😜
