Lulu Chen '13 (Princeton University)
I will be the first to say that college (or at least Princeton) sure is difficult, even harder than AP english 11 or APUSH II or whatever class you are currently complaining about... But actually, the tough classes I took here were (are) often the most rewarding ones (this is a truth). I've also found that MHS prepared me especially well in the writing department.
Current students: Take the time to really explore your interests and do extracurriculars that sound attracting you (regardless of whether they look good on paper & whether you'll be good at it). You'll find that there's so much to explore but 4 years of college isn't nearly enough - do some of the exploring beforehand! Seniors, enjoy your last year and know that there is so much to look forward to, wherever you may end up.
Thanks so much to the teachers, coaches, counselors, administrators, the Board of Ed., basically this whole community :)Best wishes,Lulu Chen
