Growing up in non-muslim communities has been one of the biggest challenges I had to overcome, but it forced me to develop coping mechanisms that helped me adapt to my surroundings.

However, I give myself credit.I played the game very nicely and didn’t dare to break the rules of society. By third grade the whole “fitting in” concept was a piece of cake. I was exactly what I wanted as a child: winning class president two years in a row, playing lead in a major sixth grade play, and making plenty of friends.

Having a combination of what we learn since day one through all the semester and adding all or some of the topics on future projects was an outstanding way to keep learning not only the previous topics but the new ones we touch during school time. Sharing in class our progression was awesome because it showed us how behind or ahead we were with our work, but the most important the extra help or feedback we got from other students. I personally think it was worth the time we spent in class since I always went home after each day of class knowing that I had learned something knew in my life and that I will be using in my
I would always enjoy those games because that was when the opposing team would concentrate on my play and my team would step up in a big way and win the game. In those days life was good and easy. Then four words would make my life more difficult than what it already was, high school and women. I had always been the type of person who could be friendly to people and would say hello even to the nerds but know that I was in high school some people (meaning girls) wanted a little more than a hello especially since I was a known sports
When I was an underclassman the definitions of clubs seemed to blur into an indistinguishable mass. Yet, I eventually realized that Key Club stood out because of its member’s desire to serve. For me, Key Club has become staying up late and drafting an email again and again, or spending hours organizing a program, and always getting to serve a school that has done so much for me. Despite its hardships, I have loved being the K2K East board member this year! Key Club has given me fantastic opportunities to serve my school and my community.

When I first started band I was in 7th grade and I had the highest hopes that band would be the best and easiest class I had ever taken but that thought was abandoned the first day of summer band.

Soon after, I made more friends, I was eager to go to school everyday. This made me feel happier, warmer, and cheerful. A turning point occurred at the beginning of 7th grade, and we had a new principal named Mr. Ak, who altered the schedule to each homeroom sharing the exact same schedule based on his/her math level for the rest of the their time at MSA. I looked at my schedule and saw Homeroom:7B. Right before class started, Akansha came to me smiling, like the first day of 6th grade.
Friends are an important aspect of high school and take a big part in you as a person. All my friends have made me the person I look up to now and have help me find myself more each day. Although, the path towards the right and true friends was just a little bump in the road.

Whatever the situation may be, I am very coachable and I like receiving constructive criticism so I am able to learn from my mistakes and grow as a person. Throughout all of my schooling I have been very self driving and motivated to do the best I can. In high school I received a 4.0 and graduated 5th in my class.
