How to Survive High School Day 13: Get involved

It was the best decision I had ever made.

I’ve never loved a place as much as I love Carlmont. As stupid it may sound, I really do enjoy the all the things I get to do here and I can’t emphasize that enough.

Freshman year for me was tough. I came from a small school of 300 students to a school of over 2000. I was enrolled in my six normal classes: hstory, English, science, math, p.e., and Spanish.

The only thing I got involved in at Carlmont was cheerleading, and back then our reputation was horrible. That gave me a bad impression of the school.

If it wasn’t for AS English with Mr. Raisner, and if he wouldn’t have persuaded me to join Journalism, well first, you wouldn’t be reading this article, and second, I wouldn’t be where I am now.

Joining journalism sophomore year not only let me meet so many awesome people, but it has opened many doors and opportunities for my future.

The excitement of getting involved in something really made me start to love Carlmont more and more every day.

This year as a junior, I have recently gotten involved in Carlmont’s Associative Student Body (ASB). Again, I have met so many awesome people and can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me.

Just get involved. Even if you don’t feel like you will be good at something, try it anyway. You might end up loving it and its definitely worth a try.
