You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world. ~Tom Brokaw
As a Senior in High School, the only thing that will go through your mind is graduating, getting that diploma on your graduation day. Therefore, it takes dedication and commitment to achieve those accomplishments in the end. Its not something easy where you can just sit around all day and do nothing. You have to work for it.
Your Senior in High School will be one of the most hardest year for you. Each of the four years in High School counts, some of those years will be easy and some of those years will be difficult. Remember starting as a Freshman and Sophomore? All you had to do was attend school, get good grades so your GPA will stay decent and stay on track for credits. Junior year will be a bit harder, although you may do the same tasks, here comes the ACT, ACT is the trademark standardized for college entrance examination. Lastly, as a Senior, this is when you have to be on track with everything involving credits and grades in school. Procrastination isn’t an option as a Senior.
Try to get along and get to know your teachers because it will be helpful when it comes to your letter of recommendations for college. After receiving your letter of recommendations, sending your teacher a thank you card for your appreciation would be a nice thing to do. Here comes the most headache that every Senior in High School will experience. This is also the year that you have to finish your college resumes, teacher letter recommendations, special circumstance essays, college touring, applying for College, apply for as many scholarships as you can because there are scholarships everywhere and about anything! It takes major commitment to finish these task but in the end everything, every sweat that you have drop, the all night studying, everything will be worth it in the end.
As a Senior that have just graduated this June, I Dorkboua Yang, graduate Class of 2013 from Park Center Senior High School have been through these struggles, everything is not what it seems. You have to believe in yourself that you can do it, if you don’t you won’t go anywhere. Dreams don’t just happen, you have to make that dream come true. Senior year will be one of the most memorable and hard working year ever that you will experience, especially those friends who you thought were your friends, the true friends who stood by your side, all the dramas. But instead of worrying about those things, remember you have come so far but you still got so far to go. Starting off with College. Life isn’t over yet, it have just started. Make those dreams come true, be that someone to make a difference.
