My times as a San Vicente student are over, but there is no doubt that I still feel part of the BRAVES family at heart. My experiences in that school have given me memories to look back to as the years progress. Much of my middle school life was spent trying to find who I was and trying to fit in the right group of people. I wondered if I would be up to par with the academic standard or if I’d have trouble making friends. But as I stepped onto those halls, my inhibitions gradually faded away. I not only ranked in the top 5 of my class, but I also left with a sense of fulfillment from graduating from a school with great times and great people.
San Vicente Catholic School prepared me well academically and holistically for my high school years. In fact, my whole freshman year felt like a review of the plethora of knowledge I was taught at San Vicente. From basic algebra to diagramming sentences and decoding the ever confusing words of Shakespeare. The things I was taught helped me significantly in my schooling. I’m also involve in sports that I really enjoy playing competitively, and I also keep myself busy doing service as a member for Interact Club and NHS.
I have always loved writing, and my skill for it was nurtured significantly in the English and Literature classes I had at San Vicente. My knack for writing flourished with the creative journal assignments and numerous stories I was given to complete. Through that, I felt confident enough to apply for a job at the Pacific Daily News, and was eventually hired as a VIBE reporter.
I am now a senior at Notre Dame High school, but I have still managed to stay in contact with former classmates and old teachers. Many of us have gone our separate ways, but I still feel connected to them through the bonds we shared during our middle school years. No matter how old I am, whenever I come back to my alma mater I feel welcome and at home; almost as if I never left. As I continue in my quest for life and knowledge, I have found that there are many things I should be thankful for, and having the opportunity to attend San Vicente is definitely one of them.
