Leonardo Arias & Deshawn Foster have referred to each other as “brothers” since elementary and now they prepare for Graduation on May 25, 2018 and with graduation being the biggest transition in their lives. “I feel good about graduation I honestly always dreamed of walking that stage since my young elementary days at John E. Steinbeck Elementary,” says Arias, “I also feel sad, but happy. I feel sad because we are all going our own way, but I’m happy because I know God has a plan for me.” Both seniors can agree that graduation is a bit frightful because their future officially starts and it’s a really big transition. “I’m LOW KEY scared, but I know that if I put in hard work everything will follow through with a good outcome”, words from Foster as he explains how he feels about graduation. Arias and Foster are two hard working seniors, and both have came a long way with success and humbleness. The two have big plans and hope for nothing but success for not only themselves, but their families and loved ones. The two boys had a few pieces of advice for upcoming underclassmen as well. “Advice we would give is the procrastination”, says Arias ,” don’t let it take control of you because at the moment your assignments may seem hard when assigned but trust me it’s better to get it over with.” Arias explains that procrastination only brings you down, he advises to always be on top of your work, and do not let laziness get control over you. “For upcoming seniors, advice I would give would be to apply for scholarships and to get ahead and apply for colleges,” says Foster, “take it serious because that’s the most important thing.” Senior year comes with so many obstacles that only built them up for the better, and so many highlights that made this year so worthy of everything. “My highlight would have been the way my brothers have kept me up when I was down” says Deshawn. “My highlight of my school year would be that I became closer with a lot of people,” says Leo, “I had a great time at all the school events and I recommend future seniors to take full advantage because the year tuly flys by.” Leonardo Arias and Deshawn Foster came a long way, made their senior year worth every second, took risks and did their best to make it count. The two best friends will start their future and prepare themselves for graduation on May 25, 2018. You did it! Congratulations boys!
