Senior Year Reflection
By Thandie Mamutse
When I volunteered to write a senior reflection, I had no idea what I wanted to write about. I spent hours experiencing deep writers block and argued with myself back and forth over what to include. I was told that this reflection is ‘all about me’ and to talk about my journey through Seton, but I didn’t want that. I wanted to take a different approach and write about us, as a whole, the Class of 2013.
As classmates, teenagers, and girls in general, we all experienced similar journeys. Whether we played a sport in high school, took part in Drama Club, Art, or just went with the flow, we still were on the same journey to figure out life’s purpose and God’s plan for our lives. Many of us know what we want to do with our lives, while others may not.
Wherever you end up, I wish you all the best. I hope you never let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do. I hope you follow your dreams and never settle for less than you deserve. Nobody can make you happy but yourself. I hope you inspire others and inspire yourself to achieve things that you never imagined achieving. I hope you find meaning in your life and live everyday with the goal of changing the world. Don’t ever think that because you’re a teenager or a girl, you can’t affect change around you. That’s not true; you can. I hope you are open to growth and improvement whenever you reach a bump in the road, knowing that God has something better in store for you.
New doors of opportunity, new relationships, and new levels of blessings are in your favor. 2013 is our year, we own it. Good luck to my fellow Saints as you continue your journey and remember to never forget where you came from.
