This week marks a milestone for many high school seniors across Duval County: Graduation.High school students from across the district are sharing their thoughts on the big day with WJCT "In Their Own Words."

We continue our series with Sandalwood High School senior Genesis Gates who says she's learned a lot more than academics over the last few years. She's learned about herself.

She shared her reflections and the wisdom she's gained along the way with WJCT's Rhema Thompson.

This story is part of American Graduate - a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities implement and identify solutions to address the high school dropout crisis.
