Life really changed when Sally Bessette started public school, compared to her Catholic school experience previously.

“Going to a public school really changed me as a person because it made me more of an open-minded and outgoing person, whereas I used to be more shy and stay at home,” Bessette said.

Bessette has been through a lot of difficult times in her life, but because of these experiences she has become stronger. Her older sister, Alice, has also made a big impact on her life as her role model. When A. Bessette went away to school, she had to find her own identity without her sister. Traveling is also an important part in Bessette’s life; whether it is with her family visiting different states, or traveling abroad with the school, she loves getting to experience new, eye-opening things.

As Joe Karolewicz has gotten older, he has taken on more responsibilities, which include working at the Antioch Pizza Shop, playing football and trying to do well in school. All of these have helped shape him into the person he is today. Football taught him how to work with others, which then helped make him a great leader; Karolewicz was one of the four football captains his senior year. Working at Antioch Pizza has helped him gain experience in the workforce.

“High school has helped me to develop good time management while balancing school work, football and a job,” Karolewicz said.

His parents also have played a huge role in who he has become because they have always had his back.

Over the past few years, Sydney Kraus has realized that life won’t be a fairytale ending.

“Life throws things at you that you have to push yourself through,” Kraus said.

She has also realized that no one has to go through anything alone. Kraus’ family has been a huge factor in who she has become, essentially creating her support system.

“[One thing they taught me was] to not be embarrassed by the things people say,” Kraus said. “If you can make a joke out of it, then no one can hurt you.”

Kraus has realized how important it is to tell her family how much she loves them. Her sister Julia has made the biggest impact on her life because Julia looks up to her which makes her want to be the best person she can be.

As Derek Olson has grown, life has gotten a little more stressful and his piled on more responsibilities, but the freedom is refreshing. Olson is an excellent student, taking rigorous classes while also being a part of the National Honors Society. He has had to develop good time management skills to be able to balance hockey and school. He has been involved in a very high level hockey program, Junior Admirals, for most of his life.

“I believe that participating in a sport is a great way to learn life lessons, like how to work with others, taking criticism from a coach and forming leadership,” Olson said.

His parents and balancing school with hockey has helped make him who he is today.
