At first, I thought I had made a mistake by choosing to come to this school instead of a more "prestigious" school but over the past three years I have made so many great memories here and was able to really enjoy the full high school experience. Of course, there were endless hours of studying and an immense amount of burden and stress but I was so grateful for being in a community where we struggle together like a family. In addition, being able to go to school events such as the dances, sports games, and theatrical shows gave me and my fellow peers chances to bond and share laughs and take a break from academics and just enjoy the night. Furthermore, as a member of the Associated Student Body of our school, I was able to fully participate in school events with so much school spirit and encouragement that couldn't have left a better impression on me. As a whole, my past three years here have been a great and memorable experience that I know I could not have received at another school.
