2 more goals finished!

Goal #9 was Make someone's day and turns out, I've made someone's last two years.

Upon looking through my senior yearbook, I found this written by a current sophomore (now, junior...) I have grown closer to over this past year.

Leah, I love you.
You have made these last two years unforgettable.
You inspire me to be better and make my dreams come true.
I wouldn't have been able to go through a lot of stuff without you.
So all I can say is thank you and that you mean the world to me.
I know we will be famous together, so the world better watch out!
Leah, knock them dead :)

I see a lot of myself in her, as well as a good load of ambition and dreams. She will go far in life, and I am glad I had the opportunity to inspire her and become close friends. Together, we make a kick-butt duo and I will definitely miss her next year. However, I know she will continue to lead what I am leaving and make the most out of her next years in high school, not to mention the rest of her future. I hope we stay close friends and like she said, end up famous together one day :)

Good luck to you, and I wish you the best.

Goal #3 Give the Inspirational Message at Graduation is also complete!

I chose to double with the Felipe Guillen (ranked #5 in our class) to give the message at graduation. Together we wrote a speech based off of Dr. Suess' amazing short story, "Oh the Places You'll Go."

This is a book that is very close to my heart. It is the simplest of messages, but holds a meaning stronger than I think any of us can comprehend. This is a book normally read to young children, but still captivates me to this day. It inspires me, which is why I decided to use it for our speech at graduation. Together, I understand that I can do anything in life. Anything I put my mind to.

Congratulations class of 2010.
