I am a junior and I have ptsd starting my sophomore year of college. My grades have dropped and now that I’m seeing professional help, I feel back on my feet, but now I feel very un confident about my 3.2 GPA and lack of clubs/resume for those 2 years. I’ve been having low confidence in applying to internships because of this issue. I am very unsure on how to explain this to recruiters because of sensitive subjects, so how do I got about it? I really do wish to be a financial analyst someday.
