Thank you Xavier for teaching me what it means to be dedicated. I have learned so many important skills and values. Although it was tough and filled with many ups and downs, I will forever be grateful that I decided to come here.

I remember the day I got my Xavier acceptance letter, and I was filled with excitement, nervousness and resistance all at once. I was never pressing to go to Xavier, but I am happy that my parents pushed me toward it. Going to Xavier has and always will impact my life positively. It taught me what it means to committed, what it means to build real, meaningful relationships and how to excel academically. Immediately, I made friends, got involved in clubs, attended sports games, went to dances, studied as much as I could and pushed myself so I could be successful in this rigorous school. After all, it will always be worth it. I have found that it is always worth it to get involved as much as you can and to try as hard as possible. Xavier prepared me for college and the rest of my life, and the skills and values that I learned from Xavier will be with me forever.

When it feels hard and like nothing is going right, do not give up. In the end, there are understanding teachers, supportive parents and true friends all around you. Life is not always easy, but Xavier taught me to persevere and keep on going. Filled with countless good memories and academic success, I will never forget about my experience at Xavier. I am leaving Xavier with an open mind and I will always strive to work as hard as I worked at Xavier. I will truly miss the teachers, the challenge, the genuine friends and the good times.
