No matter who you are, know this: you are a role model for someone out there, whether it is your child, friend, sibling, parent, or even a stranger. Someone is looking up to you. You do not have to be the older person to be the role model, you can be a role model to someone who is older than you.
Through good times and bad, carry yourself with pride and grace. Through those bad times, handle the situation as maturely and responsibly as possible. That means, in a worst case scenario, posting bail after your arrest, staying out of anymore trouble, and showing up for court when scheduled. If you can do this, then you are showing others like you that getting through this extremely difficult time and getting life back on track is possible.
