I knew her for less than a year, but in that short time we got to know each other as well as if we had been friends for our entire lives. I met Anna Rondeau* at a private online high school where we were both taking a few courses. With long, sleek, chestnut hair and mischievously twinkling eyes, Anna was one of the most fun-loving girls I knew. Everyone loved her for her blunt honesty, entertaining personality, sharp wit, and charming southern mannerisms. Oddly enough, our best friends shared the same first name and both Anna and I wanted to be the same thing when we grew up. To listen to us banter over both the most serious and trivial of matters, it would have been difficult for someone who didn’t know to guess that we lived over a thousand
Today I am talking about how my best friend and I met. My best friend’s name is Sydney Rott. The story of how we met is a cliché but I am going to explain it anyway. We didn't know each other up until my Sophomore year and her Junior year. I decided I wanted to go out for the tennis team, even though I have never really played before, I still decided to join. Sydney was the number one player for the Harrisburg Tennis Team. I thought that she was a brat when I first met her, but as time went on I started to like her.
My name is Amelia Abuali, and I am a Junior at DUAA. I belong in National Honors Society due to my passion for helping others and my dedication to academic success. I have great communication, teamwork, and leadership skills. I usually volunteer to help a group of non-arab kids learn arabic, which helped me develop my communication skills. I had to communicate with the children’s parents, and I had to be able to keep the children on task. Because of this volunteer activity, I developed my communication skills with both adults and children. I demonstrated both my teamwork and leadership skills during my freshman year, as the volleyball captain. As the team captain, I listened to each member’s suggestions and advice, to deliver their ideas to
Before I came to Baker Middle School, I attended elementary school in Laytonsville. I had a group of friends that consisted of five people, Olivia Fink, Olivia Pallas, Mason LeBlanc, Kody Johnson, and Stefan Jacob. The Olivia’s both attend this school alongside me, but sadly the other three attends a different school. I became friends with those three because we all had common interests in multiple categories such as cartoons and humor. I still keep in touch with them, but I know we aren’t as close as we used to be. With the Olivia’s we all became best friends in the first week of Kindergarten and we still have been by each other’s side since. We became friends because we all sat next to each other on our little chairs, and talked about anything
It all began in Mr.Osborne's fourth grade class. My friend group at the time was Emma, Grace, Cami, Chloe, and Sarah. Prior to fourth grade, we were all just innocent little girls playing on the playground and hanging out after school. But then we reached fourth grade,
Kailey and I have been best friends since preschool. We would often go to each others houses and play. I almost think of her as my sister. All through middle school we were always next to each other. We got an award, and it read "Attached at the hip award, Kailey and Rachel!" Kailey is a very well driven person, and when she sets her mind to something she always overcomes it.
Jena Zarroli and I were stuck in the same Spanish class together my freshman year of high school. I guess you could say we bonded over our mutual hatred for it. But I never would've guessed that we'd later go on to become best friends. School ended and summer began, but Jena and I rarely hung out. Not until a few weeks later anyways, when we had the most outrageously funny sleepover I'd had possibly ever. After that we were practically inseparable, so inseparable to the extent that I even started going to work with her to help out. We usually worked late nights. And boy did we goof off. But things got done none the less. Afterwards, I would sleep over at her house.
I had met Emma my junior year of high school. She had recently moved to our small town, and appeared to be a hardworking athlete with ambition, I was intrigued and wanted to become friends with her. Nonetheless, I attempted many conversations, all appeared to be off to a great start, she was confident in the sports she played, but not so much in school. She was meek in class, and when teachers called on her for the answer, most appeared to be wrong. I offered to help her in school when I realized she didn't understand how the teachers educated their students, and to my delight she readily agreed to my help.

My best friend is Erin Bowman. We have been best friends since the 2nd grade! Funny story, when we were in kindergarden, we actually hated each other! We have been friends for around 5 or 6 years now. I used to live in Van Buren, which is where I met Erin. Unfortunately, in the 5h grade, I had to move to greenbrier. I was really really sad, because I thought this meant losing my best friend! When I told her, the first, and only, thing she said to me was; “Sophie.. That’s.. Really sad. But, I’m not worried. If we’ve come this far, there is nothing that can stop us from being friends!”. Now we call each other about everyday and talk! We also play this game called ROBLOX. It’s really fun, and we can play it together! One thing I know for sure
It was the first week of summer, after graduating high school. Most of my friends were gone away to college or had jobs. Parents working and older siblings have moved away. It was the beginning of adulthood. I owned nothing to my name, I had no job, no car or any motivation. The only useful thing I had was a friend. Nancy, she has been in my life since we first met in middle school. How we became friends, she gave me two dollars. Those two dollars made our friendship. Just like Esperanza gives up her three dollars for a bike and some friends, Nancy did the same. She willingly gave up her lunch money, so I wouldn't starve at school. Since that day we became best friends. We had the same struggle and we almost have everything in common, and we
I felt so warm even we were just sharing some basic information about ourselves at that time. We became friends and she started to encourage me to make more friends and take part in activities. At first, I was reluctant and then I listened to her. She taught me how to behave good in front of different kinds of people that I never paid attention in my hometown. My life became colorful with her help. I didn’t need to be grieved when telling my parents I am alright because I had a person to pour out my unhappiness. She never complained about my ignorance and always explained everything to me
We did everything together. We took on our first few years of high school together, we even scheduled our classes to be the same. Emily was always there for me and I was always there for her whenever she needed me. If she was feeling down, I always tried my best to make her happy again. We always wanted to be at each other’s place. She helped me with my homework and I helped her with hers.
When I think back on how close Erika and I were throughout middle and high school, the only appropriate word to describe her would be confidant. I told her everything. We talked about boys, God, friendship, struggles with family life and anything else that was on our minds. We went through some of the most formative years together and she is a part of who I am today. I’m following in her footsteps and marrying young as she did. I continue to struggle with my faith as she does. And although we are no longer as close as we once were, I still consider her my best
Me and Debbie had always been so happy, laughing and sharing together. And through our whole time together, I knew from the start that we were meant to be solemates. I would take a bullet for her, and surely she would do the same for me. Every morning I would go to her car before school and bring her Monster and Taco Bell. Every day for two and a half years, we would see each other, and be happy together. We would talk about our classes, and gossip about our friends. Her favorite color was green, and mine was an obviously superior blue. And although we had our ups and downs, we always made it through.
