At the time, I did not know, that Mock Trial was going to change my high school career. During my first year as a trial attorney, I not only improved immensely in my public speaking and communication skills but also made new friends. After a successful year and great scores at two regional competitions, I was truly proud of our team's achievement. However, many members just seemed to be completely disinterested. That is when I decided to step up and ran for the Mock Trial President position with one main goal— to unite the team.
When I joined the wrestling team in grade nine, I had no idea that it would be one of the best decisions I have ever made throughout high school. It is a sport that I fell in love with from the moment I stepped on the matt for my first practice. Being the smallest and only grade nine to join the team that year was very intimidating. However, after my first practice, I was no longer overwhelmed by the group of 15-20 wrestlers because they became my family. Our coach is a strong believer that in order to be successful as a team, it is important to support each other like a family.
I have no taxes in Jefferson” (145). Colonel Sartoris had been dead for ten years but Miss Emily did not know that, this shows how disconnected she was from reality.

It pays to be a winner, as my effort and dedication produced a fruitful harvest. Hell’s Year educated me to take the necessary prudent actions and to never take anything to chance. I am the one that controls my destiny. Hell’s Year also transformed me from the uninspiring freshman to the motivated, sophisticated and competed senior I am today. Looking back at the first two years of high school, I realized that just made scratches to the layers of struggles life has prepared for me for the future.
At the end of the class the teacher smiled at me and said I did well. Two weeks later I got a later form the Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory saying I got in. I was super proud and being my oblivious self, I thought I was the best eleven year old dancer in the
She thinks this because Creon makes Antigone marry Haemon, Creon’s brother but she refuses. She always thought of being a mother and a wife but she refuses to marry Haemon because it is something that Creon wants her to do. “One husband gone, i might have found another, or a child from a new man in the first child’s place; but with my parents covered up in death, no brother for me, ever, could be born” (lines 905-915). Like I said before she doesn’t care is she buried her brother or if there is such laws that tell her not too. But she gave up to be a mother or to have children for her
My favorite quote from Jackie Robinson is, “above everything else, I hate to lose.” That perfectly sums up my attitude towards grades, and for me, any final grade below 90, is losing. Using determination and commitment, I was able to win, and not lose, in the first semester of my freshman year. It is hard for every kid to make the transition to high school classes, but coming from a small private school with about 250 kids to an enormous high school with almost 2000, I had no idea what to expect. After 3 years of hearing my older sister complain about horrible teachers, hard finals, and difficult SAT’s, I thought I was going to be far behind the other kids, but I was already committed to all A’s. I was still wondering how hard a class could be, even after I met new friends and nice teachers.
I told myself everyday to forget about the pain and work hard to make the competition performance great. I didn’t want to spend another year standing on the sidelines of I could be perform with the team. My wrist hurt terribly, but I performed to the best of my ability. The competition went great, and I didn’t feel the pain until after our two minute routine was over. Cheerleading has shown me that my determination, attitude and effort help me accomplish great adventures in life.
I was shocked when my mom told me we be would coming here I remember feeling helpless and confused. I wanted to see my dad and my siblings but I didn’t want to leave my friends behind and I really liked the school I was attending I had just gotten into the 3rd grade which I was very excited for. I didn’t have another option, I had to come here and looking back I’ve never appreciated anything more. My life is composed of new beginnings, I moved around a lot growing up to different house, to a different country, and different schools. Coming to america I got to settle into one place with all my family.

I have come so far from who I used to be and it is all because of performing. Singing has been my passion ever since I was a little kid. However, when I was younger, I was always shy and never wanted to let anyone hear me sing. After school, I would spend countless hours in my bedroom belting “Part of Your World” to my stuffed animals, but I refused to let anyone, even just my parents, hear my performance. After overhearing me singing, my mom encouraged me to get involved in musical theater.
I began to think about my future and how my choices were going to shape my life as an adult. I realized that I wanted to succeed and not fall prey to circumstances and bad choices. My background, while adverse, provided me with the skills to nurture my abilities and make the best of difficult situations. I learned to push forward in times of upset or distress. Once I entered high school, I immediately hit the ground running and, for the first time, I made honor roll in my first term as a Freshman.
