Q. Share an important lesson you have learned, either in the classroom or outside of school.

Allison Stein, Editor-in-Chief and Poetry Editor: From my endeavors both in and out of the classroom, I have learned the importance of perseverance. The courage required to consistently strive for a goal or realize a dream is a crucial aspect to a rewarding life. I have realized that I must invest my effort in improving myself daily if I am to achieve the objective of happiness.

Stella Prince, AK Adventures and Global Village Editor: I have learned to never judge a book by its cover. This is a very important lesson in life—when you meet someone who seems incredibly smart, nice, etc., what does it matter how that person looks? I learned this out of school and have found it a very good rule to go by.

Davi Jacobs, Contributing Writer: I have learned to take my time at school and not rush through projects.

Ashley Lin, Nonfiction Editor and Adult Spotlight Interviewer: One of the most important lessons I have learned both in and out of school is to always reach out and ask for help! While being competent and self-sufficient is important, we cannot do everything alone—that’s why you have teachers, classmates, family members, etc. to help you along your way. Take advantage of these resources, don’t be shy, and know that you’re not alone in going through this problem and that you won’t be alone when you solve it!

Aryaman Sheth, Photography Editor: I’ve learned marketing from an online course from Wharton School.

Jordan Brunk, Amazing Kids from History Editor and Contributing Writer: An important lesson I have learned both in school and outside of school is to always listen. I have learned this because sometimes I was not listening and missed something important that I needed to know, such as a school assignment or funny story from a family member. Therefore, I have learned to always listen.
