Advice To Future Generations: 13+ years of schooling can be an exhausting and stressful time for anyone. The best way to make the most of these times is to get involved in as many things as possible. For me it was sports, but for others it could be any activity. In my opinion, joining these activities is the best way to make friends and some amazing memories. People always say that high school goes by in the blink of an eye, and even though it sounds cliché, it’s true. You need to make the most of every moment you have with your classmates, because it is gone too soon. You have the rest of your life to work, so spend your youth truly living. Travel, make friends, try new things, and live in the moment. Whatever you do in life, make sure you do it with a positive attitude and a kind heart.

Parents: Kelly DeMars and Cassie Braun
