Student, Otay Ranch Senior High School, Class of 2018,
The three extracurriculars that are the most popular at my school are probably the athletics. Such as cross country, track & field, and football. There are hundreds of members in cross country, and many people try out for sports. The anime and community service clubs are also extremely popular, because anime became something to be proud about, and many people began to accept other's hobbies, even if it was foreign to them. Many joined community service clubs to fulfill necessary graduation requirements; and most people go above and beyond with their hours. However, I recommend mock trials, a club where students pretend to be lawyers and witnesses, and literally reenact the court. It offered me an opportunity to meet new people and overcome my fear of public speaking, and I believe it helped me to grow as a person, because I never took chances or challenges due to my fear of failure; But now I see that failures lead to success, if you learn from it. And I think that is something everyone should learn.
