humans of sophomore honors Megan Barry

I interviewed Megan Barry about herself. Her responses were very intriguing and made me realize just how much there is to a person that doesn't meet the eye at first glance.

By Victoria S. from Eureka High School in California

"Last year I was in an advanced math class and it was hard to keep up because we had such a short schedule and it was stressing me out so my parents thought it was best to not do that class anymore. I learned that sometimes the best thing to do isn’t always the most advanced because if I would have stayed in that class I feel like I would have done worse in all my other classes.”

“When you’re by the ocean you can just write down what you see without having to explain it, and that’s why I want to be a marine biologist.”

[something she is proud of] “There was a writing competition and I took a little snippet of what I wrote and submitted it and I won first place.”

[a person that had an influence on her] “One of my friends really influenced me because i’ve always had trouble relaxing and stuff and when I hung out with her over the years she taught me that I have to relax and laugh sometimes and when I hang out with her it just makes my day better.”

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.
