How I Feel about Graduating

Leslie Collins, Writer

I never actually thought I would ever graduate high school, because no one in my family has really graduated. I am going to be the first one to actually finish high school completely. I am still kind of dumbfounded about it, like I can’t really believe that it is happening. This is such a big big moment for me. I am so so so blessed to have so many people that are proud of me. I have so many people that want to see me succeed and go far in life and I couldn’t be more grateful for that, like some people don’t understand that having people in your life that are proud of you can make a big difference in whether or not you succeed in life or not.

Graduating is actually one of my 2019 goals. I have waited so long to get to this point I went through two other schools before I came to mesquite and was finally able to get on the right track and get good grades. I have so many people to thank, but that is just gonna have to wait till my speech at graduation.
