Hey bloggers! I apologize for not keeping up with my blog, but I usually blog whenever I get inspired- luckily I am! A couple weeks ago, I was sitting in class and heard my name being called through the announcements. I, along with six other girls, was nominated to be a part of Senior Sweetheart.
In my school, it has always been a tradition to have the “Sweethearts” represent the senior class. I have always wanted to be a part of it from the beginning, and was excited hearing that I was one of the lucky girls!
I must admit, being a Senior Sweetheart is not all that easy. The girls who get nominated get to have an escort, perform a skit showing how sweet they really are, and get a close friend to do a testimonial on their friendship. It was very difficult for me to even think that I was going to perform in front of the whole graduating class- I am already scared to present in front of a classroom!
However, I’m am happy to say that everything turned out perfect. I wouldn’t want to change that moment for the world! I was escorted by my mom- my absolute best friend, I performed an excellent skit- it can be found on my page if interested in watching, and I felt a mixture of good emotions when one of my best friends read my testimonial. It was the best feeling!
Tomorrow, the day has come when the Senior Sweetheart winner will be announced. However, to me, I already consider myself to be a winner. I have finally faced my fear by proving to myself that if I have the courage to get on stage and speak in front of the whole senior class, I can do anything!
Sometimes, all it takes is for you to face your fears and step out of your comfort zone. Once you accomplish that part, then the rest comes easy, I promise.
