Shy, awkward and quiet. My entrance into high school was anything but extraordinary. High school offered me the chance to start fresh and find myself amongst a pool of other students who also had a desire to stay true to themselves. However, after four years of going through relatively the same routine, I am still reserved, serene and about the same height as I was before.
But one thing has changed for sure: I managed to find my own voice, through writing. Being given the opportunity to go out and interview others, and act as a voice for them has expanded my perspective on life. There will always be something going on and people to get to know. I just have to put myself out there.
Thank you Mrs. Smallwood and my fellow staff members for making high school bearable and fun and my life more complete. The saying “Home is where the heart is” truly applies to the JLab and its inhabitants. For me, the JLab is like my second home, and a piece of my heart will always remain here.
