Name Delaney Black
Graduating From: Atascadero High School Degree: HS Diploma
Future Plans: Cuesta for 2 years and then transfer to a 4 year college, interested in Psychology, but I want to explore what other options there are.
How I was affected: Half of me loved it (some of my friends don’t go to my school), and half of me was bummed. I really missed going to lunch with my friends, hanging out, or going to the beach.
Some of the emotions I experienced when this all started: Disappointed about graduation ceremonies and missing senior activities.
One positive thing was: Spending more time with family, pets, and nature
One difficult thing was: Not being able to ask the teacher questions in person and get an immediate answer.
Something that Surprised me: Doing schoolwork at home was way easier.
Something that stood out during this experience: Facetime got me through! My friendships are important and that was the way we stayed connected.
Something Unexpected that I learned: I’ve learned how to keep myself busy and be more independent.
New things I did while staying at home: Painting more! I like getting what’s in my head out on paper.
Lori’s Summary: Delaney agreed to toss her graduation cap in the air for me. I see her as very kind, cooperative, and someone who values relationships.
