I've recently graduated the Valedictorian of my class from Anacostia Senior High School. I was a member of the National Honor Society, a tutor, and the captain of the cheer leading team. I also interned at a local elementary school in the Anacostia community, shadowing kindergarten teachers. Although Anacostia isn't one of the strongest Academic wise high schools in Washington D.C. I must say the students and I there made a way to become successful, to graduate, and become prepared for college the most effective way we could. Of course with the help of teachers, administrators, coaches, and so on to help us along the way. Anacostia is stereotyped in numerous of ways. However, the students there or I did not let those "rumors" hinder us from becoming the best that we know we can be. I now attend NCA&T State Univ. majoring in Elementary Education, I want people to know that anything is possible to accomplish despite the negativity that tries to hinder us from accomplishing our goals.
What I like about Anacostia is that I've been there four four years and it's do unique. Some people don't see potential in us but there is a lot, Many students are super smart and talented. My experience at Anacostia is so fun and it helped me come out of my shell. I made a lot of friends each year and became more involved in extra curricular activities, One thing you'll never be is bored at Anacostia. The teachers are really helpful and care about you so much. You basically are like family's at Anacostia, everyone has each other's backs.
