I LET YOUR JUDGMENT GET TO ME...
On a recent visit to outer space, junior
Andrew Tripp dove into the unknown. It
wasn’t an actual trip to space, but that didn’t
undermine the value of the mental journey.
He watched documentaries, explored theo-
ries, and recreated the universe through art.
Space was his getaway.
“I like the vastness of space, and how
much of it is unexplored,” Tripp said. “I feel
like it would be easier to be myself in a place
that isn’t as explored, with no biases.”
Tripp was in Studio Art class, where one
assignment was a self portrait. He drew
himself surrounded by stars and planets, in a
place where he could be himself, sometimes
unlike his reality.
“There was a while where my mom
wanted me to be this person that I wasn’t, so
I had to change who I was based on what
my family wanted me to be,” he said.
To help his family understand who he
was and what he wanted to be, Tripp seized
art as his tool.
“With art, it gives me an outlet for what
I wish I could talk about, because I’m not
good at talking about stuff,” he said. “It lets
me express different things that are going
on in my head in a safe and healthy way, so
that I don’t bottle up everything in me and
never talk about it.”
There was a time when Tripp didn’t use
his art as his voice. He locked himself away.
He didn’t know how to express who he truly
was. After he got started in art, however,
there was no going back.
“It’s like this weight off of my shoulders,”
Tripp said. “I have all these different medi-
ums and different ways to express myself
that if people don’t understand, that’s ﬁne,
because I understand what it means to me.”
With this, Tripp realized that not many
people outside of his friends knew who he
really was. He hoped his self portrait would
bring that to light.
“With the way I drew the ﬂoral shirt I had
on, and the space, and the gold around the
outside, I wanted to be able to show people
who wouldn’t necessarily know me from just
seeing me in the hallway or something, that
I’m actually kind of a cool person,” Tripp said.
“I care about different things and I’m not just
like everybody else. I’m my own person.”

In her seventh grade year, senior Grace Mora
struggled with self-image.
“When I browse social media, I see all the
models,” Mora said. “I [would look] at their bodies
and think ‘Wow, I wish I could have this.’”
Mora eventually conformed to society’s ideal
image: a skinnier ﬁgure.
“[I thought] I needed to look a certain way,”
she said. “I wanted to look perfect when perfect
is not really a thing.”
After scrunching her diet to achieve that
ﬁgure, Mora’s self image began to deteriorate.

A rapid heart rate, difficult breaths and a sense of dire panic:
Cases where students faced only brief moments of anxiety before
a test or completing last minute assignments were just as valid
as instances where students found themselves seeking out help to
deal with seemingly uncontrollable and overwhelming feelings.
With each passing day, it seemed as though these issues have
become a rising problem among adolescents, especially with the
everyday pressures they could face on a school campus.
Principal intern John DeVito said that as an administrator, he
often dealt with student anxiety and depression.
“Because of my position dealing with grades and graduation
requirements, and dealing with the counselors closely, [mental
health] is something that does come up regularly where kids are
stressed about workloads,” DeVito said.
As students progressed through high school, even the
uncertainty of whether or not they will be promoted to the
next grade level could cause stress. Students often disclosed
information with DeVito, where he would recommend them to
talk to a trusted friend or a professional.
“There is a protocol depending on what the student
says or what they’re feeling that kind of leads [the
counselors] in a certain direction to get the student
help. Most of the time it ends in a parent phone
call and making the parents aware and giving
Along with doctor diagnosed cases of a
mental disorder came students who found
themselves facing the confusion, shame,
and denial that often comes with a
“I think a lot of students at
UHS consider themselves to
have a mental health problem,
this school comes with a lot of
pressure and responsibilities,”
sophomore Brianna Diehl said.
“High school gets to people, I can
speak from experience. Going from
middle school to here was rough, and it
could take a big toll on someone if they
were not mentally prepared.”
Having a stressful family life
could pile on more weight
to an already overwhelming
school life. Junior Lathan
Schefer had six siblings at
home and had to take care
of them before he can do his
own homework, including AP
classes. His siblings’ ages varied,
making it harder to deal with them
all at once.
“Just taking care of [my siblings], making
sure they get their homework done, getting them
ready for bed - by the time I get all that done and it is time for
me to do homework, I am already really tired,” Schefer said.
Setting long and short term goals, whether it be academic or
to improve overall health, was something that might have helped
keep things from going completely off the rails. However, when
a student found themselves not making progress towards their
goals, it may have appeared as if they were beyond reach. This
took a toll on the students happiness on and off campus.
“Dealing with mental issues is always extremely difficult,
especially when you’re suffering in silence,” senior Caitlyn
Spaulding said. “I’ve seen my anxiety take a direct toll on
how I perform academically in school and socially within my
Learning to deal with stress and anxiety in high school taught
students important life-long lessons. First being, that it is okay
to struggle and that it is normal. Life can be overwhelming and
come with quite a bit of pressure, especially as a teenager in
high school. However, not talking about these feelings had the
possibility of leading into something much worse.
“School gives me the most stress, I tend to bottle it up, then
it all kind of explodes,” freshmen Danielle Kushman said. “It
usually happens after I get bad grades, it is usually the little
things. I think there is more pressure on teens nowadays, higher
expectations for college, grades, and big stuff that wasn’t as
relevant then as it is now.”
Students like senior Ean Brockington have seen firsthand
how cases of anxiety and depression could drastically
impact their friends’ lives.
“I’ve seen anxiety make my friends dropout of
high school this year,” Brockington said. “Their
life got affected because they stopped trying
because their depression and anxiety got in the
way of them putting in the work needed for
them to graduate and so they just gave up.”
Even for those who have not yet reached
their tipping point, a list of to-do’s can
quickly add up when their hefty schedules
caught up with them. As a high school
student, college student, and football player,
junior Thomas Schiffman was forced to push
through his hardships.
“I am in dual enrollment right now.
Having seven classes here [at University],
then going for dual enrollment after
school,” Schiffman said. “Then dealing
with football and workouts throughout
the entire year, it builds up stress.”
Another dual-enrolled student, junior
Ayanna Castro, who had 10 classes, seven
at University high and three at Daytona
State college in addition to her job,
understood what constantly bringing
stress upon herself can feel like.
“[Basically] I am stressing myself
out because of school,” Castro said.
However, she has found a way to motivate
herself to push forward. “I handle my schedule
because I am motivated to be the best version of myself
that I can be.”
Between upholding a steady social life, maintaining good
grades, and dealing with family, many students found themselves
with pent-up anxiety or sadness.

Teen Treatment Center, it was found
that one out of five adolescents has a
mental health disorder, yet only 50%
of those adolescents get the help that

“The most prominent ones are the ones

It’s everywhere—Snapchat news stories,
Hawk Day speakers, Netflix series—they’re all
quick to broadcast it: ‘DEPRESSION IS RISING,’
‘TEENS ARE AT RISK.’ Characters like Hannah
Baker in ‘13 Reasons Why’ familiarized their
fans with mental illnesses, but it’s closer than
a fictional high school in Northern California.
Freshman Jane Smith*, sophomore DaisyMay
Watkins, junior Meghan Mullaney, and senior
Danielle Butler have all faced their own battles
with mental illness. With the school district’s
creation of the Student Mental Health Action
Committee in the fall, the four students opened
up about their struggles and the need to talk
more about mental illness.
“Ever since I was a kid, I was paranoid
and anxious. I didn’t understand how people
could leave their house without feeling scared.
I realized that there was an actual name for
what the issue was. I have general anxiety,
depression, and paranoia,” Smith said.
Similar to Smith, Mullaney’s illness stems
from her childhood. “I have PTSD because
I was molested twice when I was younger,”
Mullaney said. “I’m in foster care because of
that. I look like I’m always happy, but my anxiety
jumps sometimes and makes everything hard.”
Watkins shared that she faces issues
with anxiety as well. “It recently came up
again, 20 times worse. I have depression, too,
and depression isn’t just the drastic stuff. It’s
walking in the hallway and feeling completely
empty like you’re completely numb. I just
wanted to lay here until I rotted away, and I
attempted suicide on multiple occasions,”
According to Butler, her own depression
grew due to an ongoing relationship she
described as abusive. “My sophomore year of
high school, I was really depressed,” Butler said.
“Part of what brought that on was the extremely
unhealthy relationship that I was in. What my
ex-boyfriend did to me amplified how depressed
I was feeling before.”
In spite of their dark days, the girls found
the will to overcome, open up, and reach
out for help. “I realized I was in an abusive
relationship when I wanted to end my life
because I thought my boyfriend didn’t love me,”
Butler said. “After I realized how toxic
the situation was, I had great friends and my
mom that helped me. I ended up going to
counseling, and my ex-boyfriend and I ended
things. That was the best summer of my life. I
found myself again.”
“I went to Robert Packer Hospital in the
Behavioral Science Unit,” Mullaney said. “It’s
really helpful going there. It’s quiet, and it’s just
very beneficial. Since I’ve gotten the help I need,
I’m more positive in life, and I learned to not only
care about other people, but myself, too.”
Through finding the help they needed, they
overcame the depths of their illnesses. They
became survivors, ready to pass on advice and
support others. “I’ve been trying to set it up so
I can speak at a Hawk Day,” Mullaney said. “If I
could just save one more life, that’s incredible.
My words as a high school student struggling
with the same thing that a lot of other people
struggle with can let them know that they’re
“If I saw someone in a relationship as toxic
as the one I was in, I would not hold back. I
would talk to an adult, a guidance counselor, a
psychologist, anyone. It’s so important to speak
out. You could save someone’s life,” Butler said.
“Speaking up is the best thing you could do
because a voice has so much more power than a
hunch or standing back in the sidelines. Talking
about issues like this is how we fix them.”
Smith agreed, suggesting that best way to
help those who are struggling is by showing
empathy. “Even if someone doesn’t really
understand—because a lot of the things that I do
just don’t really make sense to people—don’t get
mad about it. Be accepting,” Smith said. “Don’t
put them down or make them feel bad because
they couldn’t do something or couldn’t come to
the party. You want to just be like, ‘It’s OK,’ and
be compassionate and empathetic.”
Students who need to talk with someone or think a friend is
in need of help can visit the Guidance Office in the Commons
or visit an assistant principal at any time. Counselors and
administrators can then connect students with the best
resources available for support.

Dear Student Body,
As this amazing school year draws to a close and we prepare to graduate and
move forward, we would be remiss if we didn’t take the time to thank all of you.
At the beginning of freshman year, we were truly scared and had no idea what
to expect. Navigating Westlake High School without sight was nerve-racking
and something we weren’t sure we were ready for. We worried that our blindness
might cause us to be viewed differently.
However, we could not have been more wrong. From the moment we stepped
through the doors of the freshman center, we felt a sense of energy and excite-
ment, a crackling in the air. This was a new adventure, and all of you immedi-
ately accepted us without question. You wanted to get to know us. You wanted
to befriend us, and you wanted to learn more about navigating the world in
darkness. So many of you have asked us questions like “Can you see anything?”
and “How long have you been blind?” and these questions were always ones we
were more than happy to answer. Your curiosity and hunger for knowledge on a
subject which you might not have had experience with before made us feel spe-
cial instead of different, and we can never repay you or say thank you enough.
Thank you so much for always lending your helping hand to us.
Many of you have been in choir with us the past four years and have had a huge
impact on our success. Whether it was dancing in Shrek the Musical and ensur-
ing our safety on stage at all times or making sure we never missed our cues
during concerts, each and every one of you allowed us to blend in effortlessly,
and we always ﬁt in on stage. After we left Mo Ranch freshman year, exhausted
from a weekend of bonding and fun, we agreed that Westlake seemed much
smaller because we had had the opportunity to bond with so many of you. To
this day, the countless Circle shoutouts make us emotional, and the time each
of you have taken to get to know us has been invaluable. Our high school expe-
rience would have been very different if not for the family choir provided us,
and each and every one of you helped contribute to making it the best time of
Beyond choir, the little things you did to make us feel spectacular were truly
incredible. We would approach random tables in the Chap Court or courtyard
looking for a place to eat, and were always, without fail, invited to sit down, even
if we’d never met before. You would so selﬂessly jump in to rescue us when we
were swirling in a sea of confusion and uncertainty, trying to ﬁnd our way. You
accepted tardies to your own classes when you trekked out of your way to help
us ﬁnd ours and never complained but always smiled instead. You have been
our friends for four years, and we could not have been luckier to share this jour-
ney with you.
We are so appreciative of everything you do to make us ﬁt in and feel com-
fortable. Each of you has made a huge impact on our lives, and we will never
forget you. We wish you all well in your futures, and know you will be so success-
ful wherever you choose to go next. We can’t wait to see where life leads you
all, and we hope you will always remember the everlasting bond we feel with all
of you. People always told us high school was going to be the best time of our
lives, and they were right; however, we can’t fathom what it would have been like
without a student body as dedicated, beautiful and accepting as you. We can’t
ﬁnd enough words to express our gratitude and feel honored that we had the
opportunity to be one of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts; we will
never forget you.

teacher demonstrate signs has helped him
learn the language. “I enjoy [American Sign
Language] because learning the new signs
is enjoyable,” Honan said. “The glossing is very
difficult. Glossing is where you have to
capitalize [all the words]. It’s unlike normal
writing. It’s very different.“ Photo by Emily
SEPEDI Knowing two languages can be
difficult for students, but junior Moloko
Maleka knows four languages: Sepedi,
Setswana, English and Setsonga. “Knowing
these languages is beneficial if I travel
around South Africa to different places,
then I can communicate with the people
easier,” Maleka said. “I learned Sepedi [and
english] at the same time, but I guess I got
my training with Sepedi because that’s
the language we use at home.” Photo by
GERMAN Although she has trouble with
the pronunciation of German words,
senior Hannah Lamb saw German as an
option for a foreign language and took
it. “I decided to [learn] German because
it’s the most interesting language that was
available [at University High],” Lamb said.
“Pronunciation is hard, because it is a very
literal language. You could say bicycle and
have 17 adjectives to describe that bicycle.”

ITALIAN Online resources, like Youtube
and Rosetta Stone coupled with his
grandma’s own teaching, aided sophomore
Elijah Leon in learning Italian. Leon’s
passion for the country moved him to
pursue acquiring the language. “I love the
country,” Leon said. “I love the cities. I love
watching the sports they play there and I
am a little bit Italian. The most difficult
part [of Italian] is trying to remember
some of the different words and phrases
that they use and the different accents. The
easiest part has been that some of the words
are similar to Spanish and English, and
so seeing those words that are similar and
comparing it is easy to remember them.”

SPANISH Freshman Cristal Tejeda-Castro
understands that while it can be hard to
learn Spanish, it can benefit you to know
the language, especially for the future. “In
Spanish one word can mean a lot of other
things and people can really get confused,”
Tejedacastro said. “I want to learn the history
[of Spanish] because I speak it and my
family speaks it and here around school,
so I really want to know where it came
from and how it developed. I recommend
others to learn Spanish to learn new things
and in the future while you’re getting a job
you will be more recommended and have
more opportunities because you speak two
languages.” Photo by Emily Edwards.
ARABIC Growing up in a household that
spoke both English and Arabic helped
junior Sajah Yousef learn to fluently speak
Arabic. “I learned [Arabic] and English
at the same time,” Yousef said. “I think it’s
better to know more languages than one
so you can understand things when you go
traveling and so you can speak to family. [If
you want to learn] I would say get a good
teacher.” Photo by Emily Edwards.
With three different language courses offered at University High,
students had the opportunity to expand not only their knowledge of
the world around them, but also the people in it.
There are also students like junior Elianeth Alicea who can speak
two languages fluently already, but decide to add on one more
because they’re interested in learning about various cultures. Alicea
fluently speaks English and Spanish, but she is currently learning
American Sign Lanaguage.
“Knowing more than one language allows you to communicate
with different types of people,” Alicea said. “Not only that but it
makes you feel like your world gets smaller and smaller the more you
get to know and it’s just really fun to get to meet different people
from different backgrounds and it’s just really beneficial for oneself.”
In addition to being able to meet new people and learn their
stories, knowing various languages gives students the chance to travel
more and not feel like an outsider.
“When you know multiple languages it helps you if you leave
the country, because then you are more comfortable and you have
somewhat of an idea of what is going on around you,” sophomore
Adrian Edwards said. “I am trying to learn Spanish so that when I
leave the country to visit my family in the Dominican Republic, I can
communicate with not only them but the people there.”

“42ND STREET” PRODUCTION
LAUREN JORDAN, 11
A NEW IDENTITY/ Performing the part of a
prima donna, junior Marissa Suazo plays Dorothy
Brock, a stereotypical, sassy and temperamental
movie star who has to have everything her way.
“Dorothy Brock was the most challenging character
I’ve ever played,” Suazo said. “It took a lot of
rehearsal to create a believable character that was
different from whom I am as a person.” Photo by
s the lights dimmed, silence overtook the auditorium in
anticipation of the opening night performance Jan. 31 of
“42nd Street.” The musical took months of preparation and
combined the efforts of the entire fine arts department.
Backstage, cast members applied the finishing touch-ups on
their makeup, and the crew scrambled to finalize all the props and
set pieces created by tech theatre and art students.
“Getting everything ready before opening night and then
changing the sets and props was really quick and became a little
hectic, but I think it was all good because we practiced before, did
things within a time frame and everyone helped each other out,”
junior Karina Guzman said.
Meanwhile, band students in the orchestra previewed the music
in the show with “Overture” as cast members quickly took their
places behind the curtain.
“Having the opportunity to play with the orchestra as a
freshman was hard and challenging at first, but as I got help from
Mr. Hull and some upperclassmen it became easier,” freshman
Marco Munoz said. “I plan on continuing to play with the
orchestra every year of high school because the experience made
me a much better player.”
From learning the basics to perfecting a triple-time step, cast
members of the musical also spent countless hours perfecting
the art of tap so that the production of “42nd Street” would be
authentic for the audience and the Betty Buckley Awards judges.
“The hours we spent on learning how to tap dance were very
intense,” sophomore Skyler Martin said. “ We practically started
right after the “To Kill a Mockingbird” production, and the tap
rehearsals after school became more often in December.”
After months of memorizing lines, practicing music, learning how
to tap and constructing the set, the curtain rose for opening night.
“The lights, the darkness, the sounds and the silence are all part
of the excitement of being in the musical,” junior Long Ho said.
“Tears and sweat go into it for a long time, and it’s really sad when
it disappears within a week and all that is left are memories and
photos.” Story by Cemal Qureshi

much more,” Tanner said. Photo by Grace Rooney.

senior Alexis Thompson struggles with cheating on her diet,
but still sees how the choice changed her life. “I feel more
