What's it Like Having a Job? Edition 1: Jenna Forestiero

My name is Delia Ferrigno and I have a job. It’s decent, but sometimes I think I’m crazy for having one. I want to find out who else has jobs and if I’m the only one having a hard time.

In this interview series, I will find people from my school who have all different kinds of jobs and what they think about life while working.

This week I’m interviewing a 15 year-old sophomore from Harborfields High School named Jenna Forestiero. Jenna has had a job for only 2 weeks and feels a little overwhelmed.

HF Leadership is taking the Class of 2017 back in time: literally. Seniors can pull up to the football fields on May 16, 2017 to enjoy a movie within the comfort of your own car. Back in the 1940s, this sort of outdoor entertainment was a popular way for families to kick back and cherish each other’s company. So why not give the Seniors that same kind of homey and carefree atmosphere?

Variety Show

Harborfields is blessed to have this remarkable event every year. Students, adults, and even teachers of the Harborfields community show off their talents in the yearly variety show. Anyone from the Harborfields community of all ages is eligible to perform in the show. If you are interested in performing, auditions are held generally a month before the show at the elementary school in the cafetería. Even if you don't get in, don't be discouraged because you can always audition next year! Lots of people who do not make the cut, end up being a star the next year and are practically a celebrity once they hit the stage.

Upside

This week, Harborfields was given the opportunity to listen in on an assembly from three  members of the group titled “Upside.”  They are titled “Upside” because they like to focus on the positive things that came out of their addictions such as pushing past old problems and meeting each other, rather than the negative sides. While this topic is a hard thing to talk about, it was incredible to see how they were able to overcome their addictions and stay motivated and stay true to their group. The three speakers, Jordan, Trevor, and Samantha all had different pros and different cons to their stories.
