Advice to upcoming Seniors: No matter whats blocking your path you can get through anything!
Thoughts on senior year ending so abruptly: “Even though its been stressful for a lot of us and its upsetting how fast it ended, I’m still getting through all of it. Knowing the fact I may not be able to walk across the stage with all my friends upsets me too, but I know all of this is for our safety. We have our own motivations, mine is my daughter. Even though I can’t physically be in school, I’m still working very hard online to provide a life for my daughter and I.”
Shout out’s and thank you’s: “Shout to myself for knocking down any obstacles stopping me from graduating this year. To my mom for telling me that I can get through anything. I love you mom thank you. To my best friend Seneca for getting my story out there and helping me get through a lot of troubled times. “Also a huge shout out to all my friends who’ve been with me since Freshman year.”
