Change is good

With just a few days until graduation, I’ve been thinking about the past 12 years and how much has changed since then. I remember my first day of first grade; I cried so much because I didn’t want my mom to leave; now I’m planning to fly halfway across the globe by myself, and I’m kind of excited about it. When I first moved to California, I didn’t understand a word anyone was saying, but now I use English more often than my native language. Thirteen schools, two countries and four languages later, here I am, about to graduate from one of the best high schools around. I’ve learned a lot in the past 12 years, but most of all I have learned that there is a reason behind everything. Change isn’t always easy to adapt to, but when you do, it’ll all be worth it. Peace out, Woodbridge!
