My first day of high school as a freshman student was very trustful but I learned something very important that will always help me in life; I should ask for help when I need It. Getting off the bus after 1 5 minutes of riding to the school, fear started taking over. I was walking following other students and seeing all these different faces I had never seen before in my life. “Good Morning Piscataway Vow – tech High School. I am Mr.. Patrick, the school principal. Welcome to your first day of high school; all students must be at their homeroom for important information they will get!
Have a nice day everyone. ” I panicked and tears when I really started to feel uncomfortable, wanted to cry. Oh My God! ” what am I going to do now? I don’t know which homeroom I have to go to! ” – I said to myself with a soft voice. As I stood on a corner Like a homeless person, I saw everyone with their friends all happy and excited walking comfortably calmly to their homeroom. Why I didn’t ask for help? I In a difficult moment didn’t Like bothering people or/ asking for help.
In that moment as I stood in that corner, I really had to ask a student or a teacher for help to gulled me to my homeroom because I didn’t know where I had to go since It was my first day, being a student coming from another district and not knowing much English dad It difficult to find my way. 30 minutes later— the hallways were empty, I still stood on that corner with my eyes all watery feeling like crying. I missed my homeroom period and half of my first period class. “Miami, I don’t know where I have to go, I’m lost and I’m just standing in a corner.
I don’t want to be here, I want to go home. ” I left my mother a voice mall since she didn’t pick up the phone. I felt so alone. I started to walk to the main office by following signs that were on the walls of the hallways. I went Inside of the main office with a sad face and my eyes all watery. One of the staff members asked me if I were k. I told her no. I was lost and I didn’t know where to go. She searched up for my 1 OFF pleasure for her to take me to class. Her soft voice comforted me a little. Room 543. “Mrs.. Sylvania, this is Jennifer Almoner.
She was lost since it is her first day in the school. ” The staff lady said to the teacher. She never introduced herself. “Welcome Jennifer, you may have a sit anywhere you want. ” Mrs.. Sylvania said to me. I sat on the first chair all by myself since everyone else were sitting in the back talking to each other. “Dock, Dock! ” Someone was knocking on the door; it was another detent, tall, blonde curly hair, and brown eyeglass wearing a black dress with converse sneakers and looking all crazy. “Hey Everyone! ” – The female student yelled. I could tell she was from the school already.
She introduced herself and said that she is a Junior student and a Hispanic student. “Hey, what’s your name? ” she asked me. I introduced myself. She offered me her help, to take me to all of my classes since she already knew each classroom and teachers. I looked at her and smiled. “Thank You so much Elian. ” I said to Elian. School was about to be over, an hour left and I would finally be at home after so such stress and frustration during that day. Elian and I sat together during lunch in the cafeteria, she ate a cheese burger, French fries and a chocolate milk as her drink.
I didn’t eat, I wasn’t hungry. Elian took me to all of my classes, every time we walked to my classes we had a little time to talk about our lives and family. It was a pleasure meeting her. We had so much in common, food preferences, hobbies, and much . 3:00 P. M, the bell rang. It was time for me to go home. Elian took a more different bus because we lived in different cities. She lived in Perth Mambo and I lived n New Brunswick. “Bye Elian, it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for your help. I’ll wait for you in the morning by the main entrance.
I told Elian. My first day of high school was stressful and in the beginning was difficult for me since I didn’t have no help from anyone because I never asked for help. Basically, it was a negative day. I made it difficult. I will always memorize this day for the rest of my life because I learned; I should ask for help if I need it. If I asked for help in my first day of school when I was lost I would have had a positive day and I would not kissed my homeroom period and half of my first period class.
I didn’t ask for help because I thought they will say no to me because I was a stranger. Elian also taught me that there’s still good people out there like her that are willing to help others. Accepting help from others make things easier and positive. Today, as a senior student in North Brunswick Township High School; if I’m confused on something or need help in anything I Just ask for it. Until now no one has say no to me; they had helped me with no doubt and life have been easier for me especially in my school years.
