I feel like when you have a dream or a goal that you want to accomplish, if you have that 'Four D' approach, anything's possible
Bloomington, IN (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
Artis' book Moving from Ordinary to Extraordinary: The Teen's Guide to High School Success is geared toward students looking to get into college. With the down economy, high school students have to be more competitive than ever to stand out from the crowd.
Artis created the idea of the Four D's: Determination, Dedication, Discipline, and Depending on family and friends to help high school students. She relied on her own experience of receiving more than $100,000 in scholarship money. Artis graduated in the top 1% of her class, achieving a 4.2 grade-point average. Her book encourages students to find a mentor, start getting internships early, and get involved within the community.
"I feel like when you have a dream or a goal that you want to accomplish, if you have that 'Four D' approach, anything's possible," Artis said.
