Take this weird week and those cheesy Zoom sessions and use them to crystallize everything you have learned and loved from this school. Write with heart to your teachers and your friends. Look in the literal or metaphorical mirror and appreciate the person you have become.

STUDENT WRITER BIOS
So what can we do instead? It’s impossible to fully commit to each of the countless activist movements promoting a worthy cause. In that way, we become desensitized, and our will to take a moral stand is spread thin across every issue. My conviction is that there is opportunity for leadership in every path of life.
The next twin hardships are the questions. Do you know what your twin is thinking? Which one is older? Are you telepathic? What is it like being a twin? Are you twins? I acknowledge the interrogators' curiosity, but after sixteen years of hearing the same questions, I have grown tired of them and have developed a little annoyance.
I found it immensely satisfying to develop connections with organizations and community members throughout the Boston area while addressing the needs in our immediate community throughout high school. I hope that students at BB&N now are finding similar joy and insight in their service work.
