My experience was not super great at Northridge High. I struggled a lot on my work and the teachers would not let me take any of my work home to study or to let my parents help me out with my school work. The teachers also never had time to help the students because they either always had a class to teach or they are on they're lunch break. I would like to see a change in the teachers, I wish the teachers would put more effort in to helping the students with they're schools work then to just lecture them and not help when the student gets lost or fall behind. A very few teachers actually do help the students and even let some students come into they're class room during lunch to help the students who are falling behind and need help understanding the work and that is something I like about the school.

When I was in school, I did peer-mediating. Peer-mediating, was a program where other students and I got together and was trained by a counselor to resolve other student's problems and our problems. It was very wonderful. The job is pretty much like a phycologist. If someone has a problem, they would come to me and I would act like a phycologist and help them resolve their problems like give them an advice for an example. I was also in student counsel. I help the school organize projects and set up things. I was also a tennis player at my school. It was my first year in high school as a Freshman and I played number one singles. At the end of the year I earned a medal as CO-MVP (most valuable player). I was the first girl in Northridge High School to win so many matches. I also do many church activities like TNTT ( a youth group at my church). I have been playing the piano for my church since 12 years old every week and has been serving at the alter at the age of 7 until now. Which is about 7 years. I have play the Violin, Flute and Piano since the age of 4 and I play in the Miami Valley Symphony Orchestra with professionals. I have done many solos for the piano with an audience as much as 2000 people. I volunteer in the Miami Valley Orchestra and for church also. I also teach the violin,flute and piano for little children from ages 3-13.
I am doing PSEO. It is a program where one can attend college early. I am a freshman who started college at age 14. I have been going full time of 17 credits per per semester and am trying my best to achieve a better future. My school has prepared me in numerous ways for the real world. Since I was in the 8th grade, I have been taking honors credit which means I could take some high school classes. The High School classes I took demanded a lot of studying. It definitely prepared me for college although when I went to Sinclair Community College, I had to admit there were much more studying involved compared to the high school. It will not stop me because I will try my best. I have not graduated but I am planning to when I am 16 years old.
