Counting down the days

Senior Jenny Belarma says she is ready to graduate


Katelyn Higgins, Reporter

Q: Do you feel like you are ready to graduate?

A: Mentally no, I feel like I’m still a freshman because we missed two years of our whole four years due to Covid.

Q: Do you think high school was what you first thought it would be?

A: No, I expected more because like I said, Covid kind of took some stuff out of our experience.

Q: How does it feel to be almost done with your senior year?

A: Omg relieved. I feel so happy to get out of this place.

Q: What are you looking forward to most after you graduate?

A: Definitely summer, spending summer with Samantha and my friends.

Q: Looking back, what was the most memorable experience in all your years in high school? 

A: Probably freshman year. I really had fun with the people, especially Spanish class – and this year, probably calculus. 

Q: What do you hope will stay the same as you continue on in life? 

A: Me being independent and also keeping good friends by my side.

Q: What is one piece of advice you wish someone would have given you when you were a freshman?

A: Get out of your comfort zone because you need to experience new things in high school if you’re staying in one spot it’s not going to get you anywhere.

Q: What has been the most difficult thing you have had to do/deal with?

A: Probably learning that not everyone wants to be my friend, you know sometimes you have to be alone to be successful. 

Q: Is there anything you wish you would have done differently?

A: Yes, cut off a lot of people early on then later on.

Q: What’s your college plan?

A: I’m going to IUS for nursing.
