I like to keep people happy. Giving back to those who helped you are very important. Even though I had so many responsibilities, I still had some fun time to hang out with my best friend. My freshman year, I already felt like a senior. It was my sister’s senior year and I was a freshman when we went to school together.
Mr. Higgins, First I want to thank you and the rest of the staff for organizing the intervention this morning. I was reflecting back on my time at Brophy after the meeting and recognize that I have received many opportunities that most student can not receive in public high school. If I had a chance to redo my four years of high school I would definitely still pick Brophy. Even though my high school career at Brophy could have been better, none of the moments I have had (good or bad) has been a waste. Brophy has dramatically changed my life farther than any school could have and changed the way I think and carry myself between freshman year and now.
Last year, I applied to be a Senior Ambassador and I was very excited to find out I was accepted into the program. Being a senior ambassador is a great experience. Starting high school is a very difficult time in any student’s life. No amount of preparing can prepare you for how different high school is than any school you have ever been in. A senior ambassador allows you to directly be a part in lending a hand to freshman.
April came and it was time to face the fear of my first surgery. “When everything feel like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.” A quote that my parents told me right before I went under anesthesia. The first weeks were tough and were only the beginning of my uphill struggle. Not being able to compete in the sport that I love, having to watch and not compete made me feel as if there was a open pit in my stomach that would never be filled. With having a six month recovery from a hip surgery wasn 't something that I thought that I would have had to encounter being only 15.
My only friends were juniors, and they were really my brother’s friends. Kenny Jarnagain and Johnny Fletcher, I bonded with them tried to blend in with them and let them handle most stuff because I could have honestly cared less. I didn’t know what to act like to fit in or what to talk like, dress like or what grades to achieve so I suffered. Somewhere around the end of my Freshman year and beginning of Sophomore year I stopped caring. I started acting like I’d never fail.
My future started at eight year old. It may be hard to believe that signing up for a summer class could be an experience that changed the course of my life, but my life changed all because of my mom trying to find me something to do the summer after third grade. This past July, I turned 17. With that birthday came not only the ability to see R-rated movies (a privilege I couldn’t wait to have) but also an anniversary of sorts for an important date in my life. I was eight years old when I was in my first theatrical production, and since then I’ve been in multiple shows, spent hours watching performances, and taken countless workshops and classes.
I ended up having to stay with my mother the whole summer. Getting to know new people, surrounding myself with positive people, even was willing to go to a new school to start a new life, a good like with positive vibes. But in the midst of everything I got scared, scared to start my whole life over. Yes, i was only in tenth grade I had two other years left in high school, did I really want to start over? To answer your question, the answer was no.
The past school year of 2016-2017, twenty upperclassmen worked alongside club advisors and me to create the infamous night at Manasquan High School: Squan-A-Thon. The twelve-hour dance-a-thon that is focused on raising money for local children with cancer or affected by other serious illnesses. However, for the committee that plans the night, it is moreso a twenty-four-hour shift. The decorating begins once the students leave at 2:30 pm and does not stop until the participating students arrive back at 7:00 pm for check-in. The committee members dedicate their school year and summer raising money through various fundraising efforts,
"I 've fallen for your eyes, but they dont know me yet." "Nice to meet you." I address all the boy 's calmly even though my mind is spinning. I remember them vividly now. Every year around the time in spring, my school administrator makes the whole high school take one big picture together for the school yearbook to show our so called, "School pride."
Let’s get into the regular season now. I played on the sub-varsity team, which was freshman and sophomores combined. I was tossed around a lot during the year. Switching position on offense and defense. But overall, it was so much fun because we played so well, and got along while doing it.
Remmy felt like she was in a movie. One day Remmy was looking at he paper for the week and the paper said homecoming week was coming up. She was so excited she couldn 't breathe. She wanted to win homecoming princess, but what she didn 't know was someone else did too and would do anything to get that spot.

Most mentees are freshman who would like guidance during their first year of college. As a freshman, the business major described herself as an introvert and nervous about the transition to college. Instead of enjoying her weekends with new friends, she spent her weekends at home. Eventually, Christina Funk began to associate herself with an upperclassman. “I actually found an accounting major that was a junior when I was a freshman.
I remember starting my freshman year at Blythewood High School thinking about all the changes that I would have to face, transitioning from Kelly Mill Middle School to this large campus in this little town of Blythewood. I assumed it would be like the movies; a school full of adult looking teenagers and tables for the “popular kids” and “the jocks”. It wasn’t at all like those movies, but one characteristic about high school and life in general
Tips for Incoming Freshmen in High School In middle school and all of my previous years I thought my freshman year of high school was going to be the toughest/worst year of my entire life.

Here are some tips that I follow that might help you overcome your first year of high school.
During the week of October 21-26, 2014, was the World Burn Congress in Anaheim, California. I hadn 't attended one for six years, so I was nervous beyond belief. I was excited, however, to be in California. I was excited to reconnect with people that I have only been able to stay in contact with through Facebook or phone calls. While in California, I acquired a strong bond with Trina McEuen and her son, Justin Hoffman.
