Personal Narrative: Best Buddies

Good Essays
One quote stuck with me as I entered high school: “Some will swim; most will sink.” This phrase came from the mouth of my History teacher Mr. Sanders. I was already petrified to take on such a transition. I was small, nervous, and unconfident. Mr. Sanders might not realize how much his words stuck with me, they made a misguided young man seek out the best that New Palestine High School had to offer.
A large aspect of high school life is extra-curricular activities. I knew that in order to succeed, I had to align myself with the most open-minded and friendly people in the building, and they were members of Best Buddies. Best Buddies is a club that focuses on forming meaningful friendships with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
