It seems as though my entire life has built up to this moment. In a few months, I will be graduating not only with a diploma for high school and college, but with the best experience of my life thus far. From the very first steps made on the SAS campus, and the fresh college air I breathed as a junior, I, alongside my senior classmates, have taken steps toward greatness and maturity to open doors of opportunities with keys to success. From this moment on, my decisions will be made not because my teachers or my parents say-so, but because I, as a scholar of the School for Advanced Studies, am truly ready to take the next, daunting journey in my life.

SAS was the start of creating bridges for academic wellness and prosperity. It was a means of love and happiness I couldn’t possibly replace. Yet, no matter what I decide to do after today, I know that I can always turn around and see my friends and teachers from SAS rooting for me; rather, for us, cheering us on, and always believing in us and the choices we make.

Perhaps that’s what made SAS so beautiful. That although I’ve only been together with my friends for two years in time, I’ve created friendships with trustworthy, reliable, and honest friends that will last for years to come. From this moment on, we know that our Snapchat stories will be filled with bright smiles and happy faces, because we can never forget how SAS has shaped us. How it has strengthened and expanded our academic horizons. How it has helped us to appreciate ourselves and become who we are. And we realize that, no matter what happens after graduation, we’ll always have someone to call upon.
