Class of ’13!

 

DSCN1516It’s really, truly, FINALLY over! Thursday at 4pm, I officially graduated from high school! Honestly it still hasn’t kicked in that I am no longer a high schooler and am now college bound, probably because these last few weeks have flown by.

There was Senior Honors Night, where I received the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence and awarded a golden rope for Scholar with Honors.

DSCN1553On Tuesday I was awarded my $2,500 LAFD Best Essay Scholarship. Entitled “The Climb”, I wrote about my experience on my People to People student ambassador trip to Australia when I climbed down Blue Mountain with my friend Nicole. Even though I was a little nervous, I was asked to read it aloud during the ceremony, which went better than I expected. The best part was at the end when I got to hold the big check 😀

DSCN1638Finally, graduation was Thursday. Even though my gown was way too big, I liked the baby blue color all the girls got to wear (guys wore navy blue, and Magna/Suma Cum Laude honor students over a 4.0 GPA wore gold.) Some people were sad to leave high school, but I am ready for new beginnings and excited to see what the world will bring me in the future.

with love, Ciera
