A Message to the Class of 2020
Student Voice: Michelle Chau, EMHS
Hi guys! My name is Michelle Chau and while I was at El Monte High School, I was a part of several extracurricular activities, sports and ASB.
Throughout my high school experience, I was able to gain leadership skills, communication skills and time management – all of which are essential for my future. I would be lying if I said it was easy because it wasn’t. It took time to adjust and a lot of learning from all the previous leaders.
I was honored to serve as ASB president this spring semester. Although a pandemic ended school sooner than we all ever expected, the four years I spent here is an experience I won’t forget because of everything I went through, the students I met and the friendships I made.
As a senior, I’m just as sad as all of you that we weren’t able to have those senior experiences, but this will only make our class stronger than before. Not everything goes the way we want, but it’s through these experiences that we are able to overcome bigger obstacles in life.
To the Class of 2020: stay strong everyone! It’s almost over, and after all of this is said and done, we will resume our lives and do everything we’ve ever dreamed of!
Michelle will attend UC Irvine and major in public policy, with plans to become a nurse.
