“Overall, I feel like I need to be achieving something. It’s the feeling you get after you study for a test and you have a bunch of tabs that you can close. I remember when I came in freshman year, I was nervous, and I thought if I didn’t know things, people would be condescending, but a lot of people want to work together. You need to put yourself out there and try to make connections with people you didn’t expect you’d make connections with, Evan Matvey (12) said.

Even though high school can be daunting at Harker, don’t be afraid, and go out and do what you want to do. I was scared to try things at first: I didn’t try out for the DECA leadership team, I didn’t play football, and I didn’t hang out with the people that I wanted to hang out with. There’s a lot of things that I didn’t do because I was scared, and it took a pandemic for that to change for me. Don’t make that mistake. If you fall down, you’ll be able to get yourself back up, Rohan Gorti (23) said.
