Humans Of CHS: June 2021 Edition

“I knew moving 3,000 miles across the country right before senior year, and during Covid-19, was not going to be easy. Leaving everything I knew behind in California; I was scared. Thoughts flooded my head: Would I meet people? How would I get involved? What was this new school going to be like? I had no idea what the next year was going to be like and I was excited, but nervous for it to start. September came, the first day of school. The beginning was difficult, with school online and most events canceled. But, things started to get better. October came and everything started to change. I signed up for Cox Leadership Workshop Staff… one of the best decisions I made at the school. Immediately, I met and became good friends with everyone on staff, even through meetings on zoom. Eventually meetings returned in person and these friendships became stronger. By February, we were back in person school and the year just kept getting better. I joined the tennis team and continued to meet new people and make more friends. I went from being nervous about starting the school year as the “new girl”, to turning it into the best senior year ever. ” -Senior Katie Gen
