​Fall, Hug, And We Move On

               by Helen Chen

          & Arabella Dixon    

​In our freshman year, Arabella and I realized more and more about what it means to be a 15-year-old high school student. School commitments, studies, socializing, peer competition... These words began to appear in our daily routine more and more frequently until they almost overwhelmed us sometimes. We start to notice pressure lingering around us, compressing us. Freshman year is a challange. But, in this process of growing up and becoming more mature, we are both grateful to have each other as a supportive friend to lean on. Life is tough, so I thank so much for having you to travel with me.
