Transcript of 1365 project
I had friends from my grade school coming to OLSH with me as well, so that helped alleviate some nervousness I had, but I was still open to making new friends.
I can remember the Freshmen orientation and retreat like they were yesterday. The first day of school was scary and i got lost a few times..
I was very shy and didn't have a very high self-esteem. It took me a while to adjust to everything and the new environment I was in. I stayed pretty close to the friends I had already had from grade school, but made a few new ones ,too.

Back in 2012, I remember being really nervous for high school, but at the same time, excited. I had seen so many tv shows and movies about high school, but I wasn't sure how it would be for me.
I was nervous for the change, and didn't know what OLSH would be like..
I decided I didn't want to play sports anymore because they weren't really my thing, and I wasn't too sure what to get involved with.
I got involved in the Young Hands activity and sold candy grams that benefited different charities. I have been involved in this activity in 9th, 10th, and 12th grade and it was nice knowing we were helping to serve those in need.
The summer before Sophomore year, I had decided I wanted to be healthier and lost about 50 pounds. It boosted my confidence a bit and I felt a little more comfortable.
I became friends with some new people I had never talked to before and they turned out to be my true best friends.
I decided to do the Christmas play that year and was a minion in "Despicable Christmas"
I also got the chance to go to New York City for the first time on my 16th birthday that year and that was an unforgettable experience.
I didn't do much Freshman year and I feel like that was mostly due to me taking so long to get used to high school and not knowing what I wanted to do exactly. I kind of wish I would've done more my first year here, but I think I still got a good experience out of high school overall.
Junior year brought on some new changes and I formed relationships that would greatly impact me.
I did the Christmas play again for the second year and I started to get more comfortable with myself. I was also on Prom Committee and both were a lot of fun.
I had a lot of fun with the friends I had that year and grew as a person a lot.
I learned to strive for what I wanted and to be the person God intended for me to become.
I felt as though I had grown even closer to God by Junior year and He had helped me and blessed me with a lot that year.
A few weeks before senior year started, my grandma died after suffering for so long. That was extremely hard for me to deal with and still is, because she was so close to me, but God has granted me strength to get through it the best I can.
I was excited to be going into my last year of high school, but I was also nervous for the changes and decisions I would have to make in the following months.
Senior year started out with not only the loss of my grandmother, but the loss of one of my best friends who just cut ties with me. That was also hard to deal with..
However, I feel like I have found myself more now and OLSH has made me realize the kind of person God wants me to be.
I tried to keep a positive attitude the best I could even when things seemed really hard. Prayer is a huge part of my life and gets me through a lot. I believe OLSH has really helped me maintain my prayer life and relationship with God.
I have experienced a lot of heartbreak and change this year but I think it is all apart of God's plan for me.
If I wouldn't have come to OLSH, I would've missed out on some great opportunities and meeting great people.
I have grown a lot in my faith and learned more about why I believe what I believe and what it truly means to be Catholic and a disciple of Christ.
I was involved in Young Hands and Tree Huggers, which are both great service groups.
I did the Christmas play again for my third year and it was very memorable.
I have transformed in the sense that I have developed a strong sense of empathy for others and always put myself in other peoples' shoes.
By getting to go to mass and the chapel a lot in school, I've been able to not only grow closer to God, but remember why faith is so important in life.
OLSH has helped me become a stronger person and not be so afraid to try new things and go out of my comfort zone.
The Felician Core Values will always be instilled in me and I will always do what ever I can to live by them and I look forward to the future
When I first heard about this project, I had no idea what i was going to say or do with it. However, it has made me think and realize the positive things/outcomes high school has given me and the tools I will take with me through the rest of my life. I am grateful that I got the opportunity to come to OLSH because it has helped to shape me into the person I am today.
