Juliette Davila, ’17, reflects on her senior year and looks forward to starting a new chapter of life.

“My favorite memory from this school year was going to the choir trip to Disneyland,” Davila said. “Next, I plan on attending Fresno State and majoring in psychology and minoring in creative writing. Some advice I would give to the juniors is to make every moment count and to enjoy their last year as high schoolers.”

Excited for senior year, Tyler Villines, ’18, plans to make the best of his last year as a student at FC. Although excited, Villines also feels nervous entering his last year on campus.

“Along with the immense excitement of senior year, it’s followed by a sense of nervousness for the uncertainty that is to come,” Villines said. “Knowing that everything I do will be my last thing I do in high school makes me feel as though I need to savor every moment.”

About the Author:

Braden Bell
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day.” (Psalms 25:5) From knowing everyone to knowing nobody, starting at a new school can be daunting. Usually many would worry about what others think or where they are going, but at Fresno Christian there is a sense of belonging. This is the first year taking part in journalism, and excitement awaits as writing skills develop. While being involved in journalism, I hope to improve writing abilities, become more outgoing in school and community, and build relationships with peers; while knowing that the Lord will be a guide through it all. In my free time I enjoy playing volleyball, watching movies, scuba diving, and being with family. In one word, scuba diving can be described as freedom; freedom from stress, from gravity, and worries. Floating weightless, being with the whole family and enjoying the beautiful wonders of God’s creation are the best parts of scuba diving. In ten years, I hope to be done with college, and starting a family and own a nice house. My dream job would be to own my own Hawaiian shave ice business. Some goals for this year are to contribute my skills to the Feather team, make new friendships, advance academic abilities and gain knowledge and understanding of the gospel.
