In high school, I was involved in drama club, art club, and key club. All these clubs made me feel like I was apart of a family with people of the same interests as me and I loved it! I was mainly involved in key club in which I did more than 50 hours of community service. We held blood drives in which we were allowed to take care of the people who gave blood and give them whatever they needed such as snacks and drinks. I loved this overall experience because I love helping people and this club has given me that opportunity to do that.

Brandywine Heights High School is a nice, small school. Growing up in the district you know everybody and that can be both a good and bad thing. It can be good because you have good friends and always know someone to talk to. It can be bad because everybody knows your business.
Brandywine Heights High school is a public school in a small town by the name of Topton in Pennsylvania. The community and atmosphere could not be better to live in. We have some of the greatest teachers and staff in Berks County. Brandywine is public yet does not have much diversity within it. I am a high school senior who has just graduated and had a tremendous time working in high school. The teachers and staff are so involved with the students. A wide variety of clubs that are staff run help many kids become more involved with the community and school. Brandywine's school helped me achieve an outstanding 3.8 GPA and definitely paved the way for what is yet to come in my next four years of college.
