Senior Opinion: Reach out, get involved

When you start high school you consistently hear “High School goes by fast, take it in.” You never think it goes by fast until you have one month left. My advice to underclassmen would be to take every moment in. Go to sports events, get involved in school activities and join clubs. I wish I got involved in more activities at the school.

Getting involved in the newspaper was incredibly beneficial. For me, it helped me get out of my comfort zone. When I joined my sophomore year, I did not want to reach out to anyone in person, I barely talked to anyone and I had no confidence in my work. Three years later, I can comfortably say I can now talk to people without needing someone with me, I can talk to anyone in class without being scared and I can say that I have a lot of pride and confidence in my pictures.

Another piece of advice I would give to underclassmen would be stop caring what other people think of you. I can assure you the majority of the people here do not care what you do. Go out, have fun with your friends and don’t worry about people’s opinions. Do what makes you happy, not what other people want you to do. At the end of the day, it’s your life and you deserve to be happy.
