During during freshman year at Friends, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the vast amounts of service opportunities, both in and out of school, that were available for people throughout the entire upper school. I had the opportunity to help my physics teacher, Ms. Witt, at a booth for physics when people applying to friends came to check out the school. In addition to being able to help my teacher, I was also able to meet some of the people that I may possibly see in the grade below my own next year. I was also able to make sandwiches for the poor, putting my culinary abilities to the test. Looking back on this year, I wish that I had taken advantage of more of these opportunities, and I will make sure to make time for these activities next year.
