Preparing for College: A guide for high school students, by high school students

Editor: Alex Stepp


Welcome back!! It seems like it has been forever since we have had the pleasure of writing for all of you. Thankfully, school is out now, and even in the midst of the flurry of college preparation, we have found the time to write about just that: college preparation. Instead of using statistics and research with our experiences, we will be using only our experiences in the process of sharing the tips and tricks of preparing for college. Of course, we are not professionals, as we are in the process right now, but we will share with you all that we have learned so far.

I hope you all enjoy this issue!! Feel free to comment with other tips throughout the articles. Also, since our last issue, Courage for Tomorrow has gotten more wonderful writers whom we will introduce in this issue. So, be on the lookout for articles by Ben, Hannah, and Krista.

As always, feel free to contact us for whatever reason at

Thank you for reading!

Welcome to the Special September Issue

Posted on Updated on


Welcome back. It is again the first of the month, and of course that means a new issue of Courage for Tomorrow! We are so excited and happy to have you read it!

This issue is a special one. I teamed up with my local library over the summer, and they had a contest with us. The contest was a writing contest, of course, and it was based on “Beneath the Surface,” the topic of the summer reading program for teenagers. Participants were to write a poem or short story based on the topic Beneath the Surface or on the poster for the summer program. We have chosen two winners, one from middle school and one from high school, and their poems were included in this issue! Make sure to comment on those poems! Along with getting their poems featured in the magazine, they also got some prizes, including signed books by some reputable authors. 

This issue is definitely special because of these writers, so we would like to also dedicate this issue to them. They took their valuable free time in the summer to do something creative. What a nice way to spend the summer! 

I would also like to say a big THANK YOU to Ms. Sancken for hosting this contest and letting Courage for Tomorrow participate. You are the best! 🙂 

We hope you enjoy! Stay tuned for news on October’s issue as it will also be a special one, seeing as it is our ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!

With love,

Alex Stepp

Welcome to the February issue of Courage for Tomorrow! I hope that you enjoy this issue, as well as our past issues. The topics of this month are hope and love. You may notice some new things in this issue, from recipes to a “picture”; if you enjoy this new selection, please comment on that specific post. 

Some of you may be new, and some of you could be loyal readers. Either way, we would like to thank you for taking the time to read this magazine. Our goal is to help people; if we have helped you, please let us know. If you need help, again, please let us know. I would like to ask that if you know someone that needs cheering up or help, direct them to Courage for Tomorrow. We will do everything in our power to make that person happy. 

Thank you again for reading, and of course I would like to think my wonderful writers and editors. 

We are always open to new writers and artists!

I hope you enjoy this issue!

     Hello and welcome to the third issue of Courage for Tomorrow! Time has gone by so fast; I can’t believe we are already three issues in. The number of views and the locations of them astounds me. I never imagined that CforT would spread so much. As always, it is because of our viewers and the writers of CforT; without the writers, there would be nothing to read, and without the viewers, there would be no one to read it. 

     This issue is on relationships. The relationships are any type, though we included a lot on abusive relationships, as you will soon find. We also included relationships with the people that are in our lives. Since it is December and the holidays are nearing, we wrote about certain aspects of the holidays. As a whole, the members of Courage for Tomorrow want to wish you the happiest holidays possible!

I hope you enjoy this issue,

Alex Stepp

Courage for Tomorrow

Hello and/or Welcome Back

Welcome to the second issue of Courage for Tomorrow! This issue is on self/body-image. If you haven’t been here before, please read this before continuing on:

     Hello, and welcome to Courage for Tomorrow. My name is Alex, and I am the creator of this magazine. I did not come up with the idea for the magazine on my own, though. I was reading Keep Holding On by Susane Colasanti when the idea struck. See, the main characters were making a magazine, a newspaper, that would be used to tell the stories of people who were affected by suicide. It was used to remind people that they are not alone. I thought that was a beautiful idea. How great would it be, I thought, if there was a magazine or newspaper that could help people with all conflicts. People could share their stories. I was in love with the idea that I could make something that would make people happy. So, here we are. Honestly, we are barely anything currently. I believe that we are going to grow, though. I believe that we have the power to help people. By “we,” I don’t just mean the magazine. Everyone has the power to help someone, even if it is merely brightening someone’s day. That is my mission.

I am so excited and happy about all of the views we received!! What wonderful readers all of you are. Please, continue sharing CforT with your friends. 

Like last month, I have an amazing collection of writers. I am so glad that they are coming forward to share their stories. I know that they inspire hope for me, as I hope they do for you. So, thanks guys!

With love, inspiration, and courage
