Trinity High School has prepared me in many ways, other than just my education. I’ve learned how to stand up for what I believe in, how to step outside my comfort zone, and what it truly meant to be a friend. My voice grew stronger throughout my four years at Trinity. My freshmen year, I would keep to myself and go along with whatever someone told me to do. Now, I use my voice for my opinion to be heard and to fight for others who are still looking for their voice. As a freshman, I did not like trying new things. I wanted to be in the back, never be in any photos, and wait for someone to talk to me. Over the years, I joined clubs, played varsity basketball, and sat at different lunch tables making new friends every day. If it was not for Trinity, I would not be stepping outside of my comfort zone by choosing a college I continue my academic and athletic career thirteen hours from home. I made so many memories at Trinity, but the one’s I’m gonna cherish the most are the ones I have made with my amazing friends along the way. Trinity is a place where it didn’t matter what religion I practice or what I wore, it was a place filled with girls creating memories together. It’s sad I am ending my story here at Trinity, but I am ready to carry what Trinity has taught me to my new home. At Misericordia University, I will share what I have learned at Trinity with others. I will take the strength, knowledge, and faith Trinity has taught me to the classroom and the basketball court.
