Pausing for a moment in the school foyer, sophomore Claire Moore reflects on moving to Prosper from Orlando this past April. Now, she prepares for her junior year at a new school. “My physical environment has definitely changed, so I am observing new things all the time,” Moore said. “From new faces, to a new neighborhood, and even the weather, everything has been an adjustment.”

New student reflects on moving

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Coming to a new school, in a new state, six weeks before summer, is difficult. 

However, circumstances constantly change, and life gets flipped upside down. I loved my high school and friends in Orlando, so being tossed into a new environment where everyone is already familiar with their surroundings, is definitely intimidating. 

Not only adjusting to new teachers and students, but an entirely new city, with an unfamiliar feel, is even harder.

Moving wouldn’t have been my first choice, but sometimes change is a good thing – a fresh start to a new chapter.”

— Claire Moore

However, the transition becomes easier when others step in to make you feel as comfortable as possible. My fellow classmates have helped me with my schedule, and even offer to sit with me at lunch, which provided a huge relief for the first day. I’ve also met others while doing peer work, or projects, which connected me with more people. 

Although it’s still hard being disconnected from my family in Florida, I am learning to adapt. My physical environment has definitely changed, so I am observing new things all the time – from new faces, to a new neighborhood, and even the weather, everything has been an adjustment.

Moving wouldn’t have been my first choice, but sometimes change is a good thing; a fresh start to a new chapter. Even if it is hard now, I know it will make me more resilient, and prepare me to face future challenges. 

Through this experience, I hope to encourage others who may be struggling with similar situations – and provide a sense of comfort. Having someone to relate to can definitely give you some relief when going through a difficult time.
