Seniors Share Their Words of Wisdom
by Malaak W.
As summer draws to a close, juniors across the country are gearing up for their final year of high school. For many, this is an exciting and nervous time, as they prepare for the next chapter of their lives. To help ease this transition, I spoke with a few seniors who are less than a week away from completing their final year of high school, and asked for some advice.
Julian K says: There is still plenty of time for you to figure out your life, and to enjoy what you can right now, while also being responsible.
Juan R believes that discipline is the key to success and don't be afraid to fail its part of the process
Jala C has 4 overall main tips for upcoming seniors. First to focus! Take breaks when necessary and needed, once you finally complete and get past that finish line you will feel so much relief. She says to not stress overly about college if you're unsure, but to consider all of your options. Another piece of advice she stated was to look at your credits and try to stay caught up so you can drop some classes your senior year! Lastly she believes that every highschooler should take Ms. Wimmer’s personal finance class, or at least try to learn some things about finance before college, because it will make your life way easier.
Adrian A says to not stress out over your future, you will figure out sooner or later what you're interested in, and your strengths.
Lukas P strongly advocates to try not to be involved in day-to-day drama, you have to worry more about school. Don't slack towards the end of the year especially. Don't be the kid who turns in a bunch of stuff two days before grades are due and think you're good because you won't be .
Alexis Z. also agrees to stay on top of your credits and make sure you are caught up, and to never be afraid to talk to your counselor, they are there to help you! She claims
Finally, many other seniors reported that they wish they had taken more time to enjoy their final year of high school. While it can be a stressful and rough time, it's important to remember that this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So, take the time to make memories with your friends and family, and savor every moment of your senior year!
