Dear the Class of 2022,

As my graduation slowly rolls around the corner and I prepare my farewell to Colonia High, I can’t help but think of the Class of 2022.

As a current senior, I can’t help but to think back to my freshman year at this time. I had a million questions in my head, but I never sought out answers, being way too timid and shy. I was a small fish in a huge pond and I didn’t know where to start. So, I’m writing this in hopes that it helps any incoming freshmen that may also feel like small fish in a ridiculously large pond.

Here is some advice that I wish someone had given me when I was a freshman.

1. High School isn’t really that big of a change

2. Your grades are important, but your mental well being should always come first

3. Be nice to your teachers

 

With love,
the Class of 2018
