Scarlett Saenz ~ My Senior Story


Within the walls of Trinity High School I have learned and grown so much as a young woman. One of the biggest lessons that Trinity has taught me is what it means to be an empowered woman. Trinity has taught me that an empowered woman is one who chases her dreams and a woman who supports others selflessly. An empowered woman does not give up when obstacles are thrown her way and she is passionate about the world around her.  When I look at my peers and all that they have accomplished and all of their dreams and aspirations, I can see that Trinity has empowered them to reach high and to be resilient women as well. I’m proud to have been a part of Trinity’s class of 2020, because when times get hard we grow stronger & closer, and we never let anything stop us from enjoying ourselves and from making the best out of every moment. 

As I look back and reflect on my four years at Trinity I can see how much I have changed since the fall of 2016. During the past four years I have learned a lot about the world, but also about myself. I would have never seen myself pursuing a career in medicine because I was always discouraged by the rigor and extensiveness of the medical field, but Trinity taught me that I should never let anything discourage me from chasing my dreams. I never imagined that this would be the way my time at Trinity would end. I have so many memories to look back on and cherish but I also have so much to look forward to at my future home, the University of Iowa. I’m very excited to be majoring in Interdepartmental Studies: Health Sciences with a minor in Gender & Women’s Studies on a Pre-Med track.
