Human's of Sophomore Honors: Sutton

I interviewed Sutton about what one of her biggest failure was, what she learned from and what she had experienced in that past. Here's what she had to say:

By Kate F. from Eureka High School in California

“Oh my goodness I have to think about that, so you know failure? And what did you learn from it? Hmm let me think, i guess all the times, that, you know I used to do bellet, and I would mess up a lot, when I was younger especially, I would cry all the time, every time I messed up I was like ‘Oh my god I’m the worst in the class, this is gonna be my worst memory forever’ and from all those failures, I learned that everybody fail, and I also learned that it's ok to be emotional when you fail, because a lot of the times when I failed growing up, not just in bellet, but like kind of in general, some people would tell me ‘oh don’t cry, you know, it happens don’t cry’ but for me I was always a little more emotional, so what happened is, you know something bad would happen and I would cry and be really sad about it. So it was really important to learn that everybody fails and it's ok to be emotional when you fail because that's something bad that happened to you, and everyone experiences it differently. So yeah I just learned that it's ok to fail because everyone does it and it's ok to be emotional.”

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
