Humans of State High

“I definitely imagined that I [would] be the type of kid fighting for every single GPA point, trying to get valedictorian, getting an A++ in every class. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve sort of realized that that’s not the most important thing in life. I definitely still try for good grades, ‘cause that’s just who I am, and I really want to do that, but I also try to balance my [academic] life with my friends with social activities. I try to get enough sleep and, ultimately, as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that there are more important things than just GPA, and that’s really shaped how I approach life.” (1/3)

“I really look up to my friends, because they’re able to still do well in school, succeed, and also be able to have a lot of fun, do their activities, and balance their life really well. That’s something I am working on, so I often look up to them, because I think they’re [a] really good example of how to balance your life healthily, still succeed in different areas, and not fail.” (2/3)

“[In the future,] I hope to go into computer science; I want to program. I want to live in a really big city because State College isn’t that small, but definitely not a big city. It doesn’t have all the opportunities and activities that a big city does. I think I would thrive there in comparison to here. Comp sci is something I really discovered recently. I think it would be something really fun I could do in the future, so I hope I can go to college, and get a degree in that. I can move out to a big city like Los Angeles or San Francisco and work on that.” (3/3)
