As seniors submit college applications, go to prom and enjoy one of their last years as teenagers, they will have emotions and uncertainties about what the next four years of their lives will have for them.
The previous three years went by so quickly, and senior year will be no different.
Seniors have all been through struggles and we took the time to interview. We interviewed upperclassman Adam Davenport, a fellow senior at Humanitas, with his feeling and expectations of Senior year. In regards to academics Adam stated, “I was forced to stay at Humanitas for academic reasons, but I couldn't really go anywhere else,” which is very ironic because Social Justice Humanitas Academy is very well known for helping students such as Adam reach their goals in academics.
For four years, graduation is what every high schooler has been waiting for, one day you were freshmen asking teacher and upper class men where your biology class is to poof! Being seniors! Adam expresses, ¨ I'm motivated to graduate high because it is one step closer to my dream and you have more freedom outside of school then in school and I want to learn what it takes to have responsibility to know what kind of person I am”.
Remember, this is just one senior there are multiple seniors with dreams that motivates them. Although you see motivated seniors completing their work and coming to class there are seniors who contract senioritis: a horrible disease which takes over the human body and forces it to become lazy and untroubled.
Adam confesses, “I think I’ll get senioritis after college applications because I'll be chillin’ after I know what college I get accepted to and all I will have to worry about is graduating.”
