Senior Goodbye: Roberta Prats

Roberta Prats, Writer

Although my exchange year at Kennedy was not easy at the beginning. Though it was hard to learn the language, start to live in another country, and to go to another school that is not in my home country, this year was the best of my life.During this year I made new fiends and best friends forever, had new families, I have grown as a person and matured, and I have appreciated every moment and everything of this exchange year in America. I was involved in volleyball, basketball, and tennis. I had never thought that I was going to play so many sports at Kennedy, but it was one of the best things this year. I learned that doing new things teaches you to live and enjoy life. Playing all those sports inspired me to try new and different things. I made so many friends in my teams and it’s the most beautiful thing in the world.

I always loved to write and to develop my thoughts and ideas by writing stories and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to join Torch, one of my favorite subjects this year. I learned so many things and I used all my inspiration. The team is amazing, and we always help each other when someone needs help. Being involved in Torch taught me to be a better person, to use our imagination and do the best that we can do: believe in myself, learn about the life of the others, and learn how to make people thrill by simply writing a story. The only word that comes to my mind when I think about Torch is “incredible.”
I can just say thank you for being helped making this year the best of my life. Thanks to all that created memories that I will always have in my heart. Thanks Kennedy for giving me this opportunity and sharing this year and all the experiences with me. Thank you to my teachers, friends, families, teammates, and most definitely my Torch family for believing in me and helping me with everything. I couldn’t have done this without you.
I hope you all the best in your last years of school and I will remember you my entire life. I will miss all of you! I will bring to Spain all the memories that we made together.
