Student, Gig Harbor High School, Class of 2016,
Extra curricular activities are a vital part of any students education. I'd recommend to get involved with cross-country, girls for change and track. Cross-country and track are both no cut sports, however they do encourage punctuality and commitment. I've been involved with cross country for three years, track for two years, and I've not only improved my running skills, but I've grown as an individual. The people on the team are extremely supportive in every aspect. Everyone has a common goal, we are able to lean on eachother in times of need and encourage eachother in times of success. It truly has been a blessing to be a part of such an incredible community of people. In addition, girls for change is a club offered at Gig Harbor High School where we talk about women empowerment and growth. It's a community of girls who discuss societal issues and the way we are perceived around the world. We tend to focus on helping to empower and encourage those around us, working to make the communities of girls, stronger.
