In between everything that goes on in a high school student's life, it's easy to lose track of the amount of money that we spend. At this age, it's crucial that we learn how...

It feels no different to be a citizen. Really I was one before I just didnt have the paper work to prove it. The process of becoming a citizen, well, its a lot paper work and they have to process it and then you go take the oath for your citizenship. And a fun fact is like everyone that was at the swear in were all Chinese kids that had there citizenship taken away. The reason I got my citizenship taken was because over the years since I was adopted there was a time from 1996-2006 that was the grandfather period. So we were all grandfathered in. Basically when you are an international adoption, when you touch U.S soil you are automatically a citizen but they never gave paper work to prove it. I was really angry because I tried to get an Oklahoma licences transfer from New York and for some reason they wouldnt do a transfer. They said I had to retake my road test and I didnt think that was a big deal. I went to take my road test and they said I couldnt because I didnt have proof that I was a citizen and that was a huge set back on me and I felt really bad for my mom because she had to drive me around all of the time and I needed to start depended on other people all the time for rides. It sucked because I didnt want to have to take time out of someone elses day but they were nice enough to help me out. Deborah Thornton.

“As a new student at Ada High School I am really enjoying the new teachers. They are very helpful. I really like the off campus lunch, and I’m not really used to starting school so early or the different bell schedules and Im not really used to that. I’m mostly excited about playing basketball and getting to be a part of a team. -Carizma Nelson
