Upon my arrival at Trinity High School, I never really understood what community meant. I will miss the great feeling of community at Trinity High School. Throughout my four years at Trinity High School, there have been many times in which I needed a sense of belonging. There was never a moment when I felt I couldn’t communicate with my peers or teachers when I was feeling down. The immense feeling of love and community is one I will never forget. Trinity High School has formed me into a young woman who is not afraid to connect with her community. Along with community, Trinity is a place where you are allowed to live in your truth! I have seen my fellow classmates discuss their beliefs and views in which they were highly passionate about. Even if others disagreed with their beliefs, as Trinity women we were able to discuss our opinions with knowledge and care. Going to Trinity High School has given me the ability to speak with knowledge and understanding. I have always loved to discuss difficult topics and get different points of views on them. Because Trinity is an all girls school, I believe it is important that we discuss topics that are normally not spoken of. This year a few of my peers and I created a club called SAFEE (Student Aligned for Equality & Empowerment). The club allows individuals to come and speak freely about social topics. Trinity has allowed me to blossom into a young woman who is not afraid to speak up when no one else will. These are the moments I will cherish forever.
