Many of us have our big groups or small groups of amazing friends. Some of us have a best friend, some of us have not met our best friend, yet. High school is the perfect place to catch up with old acquaintances and possibly even make new friends. Everyone deserves to have one good friend that will always have your back. That trusted friend can help you with so much.
Riley Siason and Aleena Castaneda smile for the camera. They have become close this year.
A close friend can help with things such as academics, sports, and things that aren't involved with school.“I believe that friends are important because those are the people that you can always count on when you're not in a good place and they're people to make all of your best memories with,” said Aleena Castaneda (‘18). Having someone who understands you without you having to explain yourself, has to be one of the best feelings ever. Knowing you have someone to talk to about anything, relieves stress and anxiety. Let's be real though. High school friends don't always stay through it all but when they do, you have the most heartwarming feeling. Your heart jumps for joy!
