“Throughout high school, I have been involved in as many clubs and activities as I could fit into my busy schedule.  I’ve always enjoyed being a part of different organizations and sports.  I definitely broadened my horizons this way while in high school.  There were times in which I had overpacked my schedule, especially during my senior year, but the memories I received from these experiences will definitely last a lifetime.  I am grateful to say that I made the most out of my time in high school, and I hope to make many more memories in college.”
