Before Hayward High School, I went to school in Fremont, California. One of my first aspirations of high school, was to be a cheerleader and have great grades. I wanted, not only to represent my school by joining a sport, but I wanted to be on honor roll while doing it. I attended a school with tons of school spirit, I made the cheer squad my sophomore year, I had a simple academic schedule, I had off campus lunch and my day ended at 2:50pm. As a high school student what could have been better? I just couldn’t accomplish my aspiration at this school. I couldn’t balance both cheer and academics. I began giving up on myself. I remember crying and telling my mom, “I can’t”. I couldn’t be a cheerleader and keep my grades up.
I was going through so much during my sophomore year of High School. The huge event that changed my life, was my mom moving out of the house. For a few months it was just me, my brother and aunt, who is only 1 year older than me. None of us were old enough to live on our own. I didn’t have anyone encouraging me or asking me what I needed.

... there is no doubt that you will excel in all of your classes. I made honor roll the entire year, while cheering. It shocked me because at one point of my life I couldn’t do it, I wasn’t strong enough or confident in myself.

Where would I be today if I didn’t move and transfer to Hayward high. My aspirations in life wouldn’t be as high. College would have never been a vision. My grades certainly wouldn’t be where they are today. I wouldn’t have achieved all the accomplishments that I am so proud of. Hayward high improved my image of myself, without all the truly spectacular staff and my friends I don 't think my self confidence would be where it is now.

- High School = High Standards High school “Best years of your life”, “Your friends forever”, “you need to make friends”, “sports are for the popular people”. All silly things that people fill one’s head with. For most this is never true. The best thing one can do in high school is please themselves.

So just because there is a bigger group that enjoys the opposite of one doesn’t mean that you should conform just to have friends.... [tags: High school, High School Musical, College]
