"I've been telling a lot of my friends who are more socially nervous just to talk to the teachers. Like one of them lost their ID and they were like, ‘I don't know what to do, I can't find it.’ But, they didn't even want to ask for a new one. I just said, ‘Go talk to them’ Because what’s the...

“[I’m passionate about] baking. My favorite thing that I ever made was this chocolate cake that I baked for Christmas this one year. It was dark chocolate and then a ganache and then crushed pomegranate seeds and crushed coffee beans. I brought it to me and my friends’ Christmas dinner thing that...

“One thing I’m very passionate about is caring for the homeless. Homeless people in our community struggle a lot, especially during the winter time and a lot of people don’t even take the time to say hello. They will act like they’re on their phones when they walk by, which is really disrespectful....

“I have a new job to pay for my car. I work at Kouzina, which is a Greek street food place downtown on Main Street. It’s kind of like Chipotle but with Greek food so I’m up on the line. I also do lots of cleaning and dishes and making pitas. It’s busy. [I started working there] like a week or t...

“I went to Ann Arbor Open for middle school. I would say it’s about the same compared to Community. Ann Arbor Open is just the middle school of this place. They’re similar because of the lottery; they’re both small schools . . . . I would say that the students from both places are similar. Both...

“I was doing the 400, which is once around the track. I started running, and then all of a sudden, I landed on my right leg kind of funny. It started to hurt and I fell down. I was in pain, a lot. In that moment, I was just upset because I knew I wasn’t going to go to regionals.”

“School basically [is on my mind]. I have so much stuff piled up my back. SAT, studying. I have tennis, presentations for my sister’s school and all of this school stuff going on. She’s deaf [my sister], so am I. So for her school, I do these presentations for her whole class about her disability...

“I play Pioneer varsity field hockey. I play goalie, and I look ridiculous when I play goalie. We just had our state championship game on Saturday against Dexter. We lost, but we beat Saline to get there. That was an accomplishment. But the game [against Dexter] was kind of embarrassing. We lost 3-0...

“I am passionate about coxing because I am put in a leadership position that allows me to step out of my comfort zone and lead in ways that I wouldn’t have anywhere else. I love the team atmosphere and how we all have each other’s backs and are able to contribute to the success of the team in our...

“I like how close everyone at Community is, nobody feels left out and I love the teachers, they’re amazing. Community is a place where you just feel safe. If someone was thinking about applying to Community, I would tell them that if you came to Community it would change your life in a way that you...
