It was one of the most exciting but nerve-racking moments in my high school years. Hearing my name being called to receive my diploma made things so surreal.

We all got into single file line and entered into the stadium and were seated in our seats. The ceremony started and row by row our names were being called. It was my rows turn to walk up to the podium. As I was walking my nerves began to kick in and my best friend turned around and said “ Aujanee we did it!” I looked at her with a smile and said “ I know!” as I watched her walk across the stage I knew I was next and then I went. “ Aujanee Unique Gotell-Askew” said I principal, and with the brightest smile I walked up and received my diploma.

Graduation in another point of view could be the transition from one chapter of someone’s life to another. Most people would consider their childhood the best time of their lives. Some could also recall a part of their life that was a new chapter for them, or that it changed their life in one way or another.

After I finally relaxed and decided to get ready, I felt an overwhelming presence of nervousness wash over me. The thought finally struck me like a lightning bolt that I am a senior in high school.
