As the end of the year is approaching, the class of 2016 seniors are getting ready for prom, graduation, college and life. Will you be prepared? Are you ready to become an adult?
We asked students at Detroit International Academy will they be ready when their graduation year comes.
“I think being a senior will be exciting and sad because when you graduate, you have to go into the real world without your friends and family. You may be separated. College is very intimidating to me. Makes me want to stay in High School forever,”freshman Bionca Ward said.
“I think that I would be nervous because there is more pressure to become somebody. It will also be a lot of stress because everything is more serious, like college applications. I think that graduating will be a big relief,” sophomore Sophia Leflore said.
“As a junior, I feel like next year is going to be fun, stress-free, and a relief because I have been working so hard in these past years, I will be able to breathe a little,” Celeste Heard said.
Being a senior holds a lot of opportunity and responsibility. It can also be very fun.
Senior BreOna Law-Williams knows a lot about that. She says it was not what she expected at all.
“It was a lot easier than I thought it would be,” Law-Williams said. “My advice to future seniors is to focus on graduation, apply for all scholarships, and don't get caught up in the crowd.”
