Student, San Augustine High School, Class of 2016,
You can be the band nerd who spends hours after school practicing a piece of music until it's right, get all sweaty and physical in athletics with other people who want you to break more sweats, or challenge yourself academically by participating in U.I.L events against many other schools. These extracurricular activities are the most popular in my school and I only do two of them which are band and U.I.L. If I could recommend doing any of theses extracurricular activities it would be band because not everyone can play an instrument or read music. In band everyone in it is your family and you all help each other out to be the best especially during competitions when you rely on everyone to be there or else the music is unbalanced. Band teaches you how to work together, be responsible, an respect your peers as if they were your brothers and sisters. Even though people make fun of you and call you a band nerd, be happy because you have the pride of showing off what you can do.
