Why am I here? When I moved here two years ago I thought DHS was the only option. I thought it was the only way I could have a “normal” high school experience, but once I heard about Animas I immediately knew that this is where I belong. Why am I here though? Well I am here for the academics, the project based learning, the student teacher connection, and the high college acceptance rate. I am here because I want to be here. Education has always meant alot to me and while I'm here I want to continue to learn and enjoy learning. I hope to be taught things that will set me up for my future. Because one of the jobs that I'm interested in is the performing arts, I think Animas will help me with that career path because of all the public speaking and exhibitions, they really make sure that everybody feels ready and comfortable to speak in public. I'm also looking forward to all the projects we are going to do, these give me a chance to express myself. I'm also excited for the senior thesis. This will give me a chance to show people what I'm passionate about and it will look great on my college resume. Overall I'm happy to be here and can't wait to see what lies ahead.
