Maybe a fun Blogpost?
As a teenagers life goes on, we don’t realize how many qualities we have in us. We’re still at a stage where we don’t even know what really makes us happy, sad, interested, or even excited even to want to finish it. In my high school career, I have noticed that there is a lot of exploring involved, like meeting new people, finding your true self, what you like, hate, et cetera. Even though we are judged by our peers about what we do, our deep rooted values and our personality are what makes us get through the rest of our life. I have been writing a lot about the class and what it’s like to be in a “company”, but this time I wanted to bring in a personal touch to the CEO’s corner and give an insight of how I got involved in Nextcourse and came here.
It wasn’t easy moving from a different country and landing up freshmen year here in San Francisco, and in a whole different schooling system. It’s a grueling process of assimilating and getting with the flow of things. We have mood swings and tantrums due to the fact that pressure of uncertainty hits us. It’s not fun being a teenager who keeps travelling like me, because you don’t make a lot of close friends, but the connections you make with people are very valuable. It’s sometimes frustrating to be a teenager too, for me it was when I didn’t know what I loved to do. I remember when I would do my homework and after didn’t know what to do besides facebook and texting my friends. It was like a soul -searching process. What do I like to do? What makes me happy? It wasn’t until my junior year in high school I realized that writing makes me happy. It was a feeling of happiness and fulfillment when I write due to the fact that it comes straight from my heart. But it’s interesting to see when adults say that teenagers don’t care, are to self- centered, and selfish to know what’s up with the world. I want to tell those adults that try discovering what you love, have the pressure of growing up, and changing backgrounds. It’s not that we don’t care, it’s more like we have to pay attention to what we need and focus in on that time.
