My name is Samantha Yang, and I’m currently a junior at Sunnyside Highschool.
My expierence at the Fresno Unified School District has been very overwhelming. The environment here and the motivation from many teachers that are associated with FUSD have given me many different opportunities and choices to look towards, and even to be prepared college-ready. My expierence has been wonderful as well because of the diversity that FUSD has been apart of. I’ve been associated with many different cultures and people of different ethnicities that I feel very culturally knowledgeable. Being able to make amazing different friends has expanded my knowledge about school and it has been such a great expierence so far. I do feel that FUSD can change for the better, and I would love to be apart of that change. My overall expierence has even phenomenal, and I absolutely love my school district.

I have been in Fresno Unified my whole life and there are many benfits. At Edison,the school is very diverse and open to all cultures but there are many improvements that the students would like to see in order for their experience and expectations to be 100% met at their current school . Fresno Unified needs to focus on utilizing student voice. We know that school is focused for bettering the student's education so why can't the students have an act and protest their rights for when it comes to improving their schools and the districts that they are assigned. Primarily, Fresno Unified needs to incorporate the students more to further their schools represented. I really like how the Fresno Unified School District tries to incorporate the students more by letting then give their opinions and philosophies in order for all people of the district to be happy.
Ever since the summer after middle school graduation I've been trying to adapt myself to Fresno High School in as many ways as possible. Taking freshman prep courses and playing in summer volleyball conditioning really helped myself become acquainted with my new campus and fellow students. So far, I'm just halfway through my first year here-it's been an amazing experience! Participating in multiple clubs, a play, and sports team all while maintaining honor roll has kept me busy, but I've loved every second of it! Well, almost every second- the long lunch lines for mediocre food, aggravating teachers, and tedious assignments I could do without. Yet it's all worth it, for I know that at the end of the day I am proud to be a Fresno High Warrior!
