Switching schools was a very difficult decision to make in my life. I would be so worried about who would be in my classes as well as who my teachers would be. . I wasn’t so sure if I wanted to take the big step in life to have new change,it was one of my biggest fears.
Brien McMahon made a big impact in my life in a positive way. I used to go to Norwalk High school my freshman year and sophomore year. It was an alright school but I wasn’t really happy there. I was so scared to transfer to McMahon, but when I did it was the best decision ever.
When I transferred in the middle of September, I felt comfortable with my new teachers and the few new friends I made. Everyone was very welcoming and kind to me which felt great to start off freshly! I got lost around the school, and I wasn’t used to the big numbers on the doors and the way the classes were organized. Everything was totally different and I wasn’t the only person who felt the same way.
I had the pleasure to interview my friend, Steven Zeleya, who transferred to McMahon when he was a freshman. He went to Norwalk High for half the year then switched schools. It was a big change for him, he didn’t expect to have moved that year. He was nervous about making new friends and getting to know his teachers because he was so used to his current school. Ever since he transferred he has gotten a better experience in school and has made lots of friends during his past two years of High school. His brother graduated at McMahon and he also transferred the same year as Steven . They both went through lots of changes and it was very difficult to make friends since they both came into McMahon shy and not knowing anyone. Everyone made them feel welcomed and ever since his transfer he doesn’t regret coming to Brien McMahon.
