“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” – John Fitzgerald Kennedy
I was scared and felt sick to my stomach when I realized there were big and scary boys at Fenn. Comaing from a small school that went to 6th grade, I was scared. They all seemed like they were mad and wanted me out of the school. I had talked to Steven Anton. He who went to Fenn on the phone and until I saw them I did not realize how big they were. I alway felt like the bigger the kids were, the more they hated me and the other individuals in my grade.
Now my whole idea of this “hatred” is changed. I now see these kids as nice, innocent and curious humans that just want to fit in. The first weeks of school was one of the worst times for me. I could tell that the 9th grade class was always mad. I now realize that you must act how you want the school to run. I remember that I was walking down the hallway and I saw two kids yelling at each other and one kid pushed the other kid. That made me feel like this safe place that Fenn was not as is it seems. Walking on to a new campus is scary, there is no question. Not knowing who people are or what people do is scary. It is scary for a while. Us 9th graders are the people that everyone looks up to. These 4th, 5th and 6th graders look up to us. If one person slips, it will affect the whole school. It is scary but at the same time a great maturing job that will shape us for the bright futures we all have.
