High School is a time in your life when you truly find yourself at a stage of coming of age to a young adult. Those four years impact one’s self in many different ways and form the person you become in the future. During the first few days of my high school career I felt that I was at the point in time when I started knowing myself and the person I wanted to be for a good path towards my future. Finding myself in high school was the start of cultivating new relationship around me that had a great impact on the person I was and wanted to become.

Being organized within my classes was something that helped me to balance staying on top of all my work in and out of school and spending time with my family and friends. Without this balance in my life I would not be able to work, get all my homework done, and still have time to hang out with my friends at the mall or go to concerts with them. Transitioning from high

I applied, and was accepted into this program my junior year. In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school.
