It doesn’t feel real. Today is my last day of high school classes. On May 20th, I’ll be handed my diploma and officially move on to the next chapter. On top of this life-changing moment, I am given the opportunity to give a speech thanking everyone who has helped me along the way while throwing in some words of advice.

When New York City was announced as a 2022 Intersession Opportunity, I was thrilled. New York has been a dream destination of mine ever since middle school, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to spend time with my friends in what seemed like such a magical place. It had been three years since I had participated in an intersession trip, with COVID altering the world for two years, and I think I was the first person who submitted their check to secure a spot on the trip.

Every year, the Evansville Museum hosts a High School Art Show that showcases the best pieces of art from around the entire Southern Indiana region. Art teachers submit pieces of artwork from Grades 9-12 to the museum; a panel of jurors then judge the work and choose approximately 110 pieces of art that they deem worthy of displaying. Being chosen out of the vast pool of artwork is considered to be a huge accomplishment.

There’s nothing easy about surviving high school. You are constantly changing social groups while trying to find your true identity, trying to balance schoolwork and extracurriculars, and contemplating if your current taste in music is actually cool or not. Furthermore, I’ve had to navigate high school in a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. Simply put, high school can be a struggle. There are so many moving parts that it’s so easy to find yourself getting lost in all the chaos.

I never planned on acting in any of the school musicals. I had been intrigued by acting when I was little, but I slowly became disinterested in it. When I became old enough to perform in the plays, I didn’t participate because I thought that it was something I wouldn’t enjoy. Do I remember the name or plot of the play? No, but I remember thinking that it sounded very boring. Therefore, I decided to focus on basketball or whatever hobby I had in the 8th grade.

This is a time of great excitement as a basketball fan. The NBA’s season begins to become exciting, or disappointing depending on your team, the college basketball season commences and kicks off with some tantalizing matchup, and the 2021-22 high school basketball season starts. This year the Evansville Day School Eagles look to make a statement after their sectional championship win during the 2020-21 season.

In May 2022, I graduate from high school and have to think about the next four years of my life. It seems surreal when I think about it. What college will I attend? What will my major be? How hard will it be saying goodbye to EDS and my friends? These are all questions that I think about as I try to fall asleep at night.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit a dungeon? Well, for my Parisian Monuments project in French 1, I did just that. I chose La Conciergerie, a French castle turned French Revolutionary prison, for my project piece because I thought that the building was beautiful and I wanted to encourage people to go to this amazing overseen part of French history. The assignment required me to make a packet, model, and presentation for a Parisian monument of my choice.

The time is 5:45 P.M. I’m still playing my tennis match almost two hours after it began. All of my teammates have finished their matches long ago and now all eyes are on me cheering me on, hoping that I can win. I’m sore, I’m tired, and I’m feeling the intense Southern Indiana heat. As I wait for my opponent to serve, I begin to question why I play tennis. Quickly, I dismiss the thought and focus on the win.

The application process is many things - stressful, hectic, pressure-filled, and chaotic. Deadlines must be met. Revisions upon revisions must be made. Documents and transcripts and records must be gathered. I’m in the thick of it right now, but taking a break to share with you what today’s college application process looks like.

As a member of Gen Z, I have some questions for Millennials, Gen Xers, and Baby Boomers: reflect back to your teenage years... What was it like? Most of you didn’t have cell phones, and many of you didn’t have the internet. How did you get to know people? How did you form new relationships? No, really... Did you have to ask out the person you fancied by actually walking up and asking for their number?

The class of 2020 was already poised to be a memorable class in Day School's history by bringing a collectively robust set of talents, leadership skills, and strong school spirit. But if there was ever any doubt about just how amazing these EDS graduates are, it was wiped away by a pandemic where they faced many disappointments with courage, resilience, and celebration of their familial bond.
