They never let us go

By Anhar Farag (North Bergen, NJ)

In just ten days, all of us have become so emotionally attached to one another that it hurts to think about saying goodbye. However goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you until we meet again!

Not too long ago, two of our counselors left us before the ten days.When Amanda Cormier (SJP '07 Alum/Columbia '12) and Adrian Alvarez left you could see the sadness amongst us all. My eyes welled up with tears! We also miss Sarah Bolling Mancini (Princeton '04), who left earlier on, but still impacted us all tremendously.

All of our counselors have left huge footprints in our hearts. Some say people come and go and only the ones who matter leave a mark in our hearts. That applies to all the counselors here at SJP! However we will never leave them, and they will never leave us! They are going to guide us all through the college applications and in life in general. So these ten days are just the beginning of a long time friendship. You never truly leave SJP:  you just become family.
