WHS student enjoys many aspects of her senior year

Melanne Ghahraman, Raider Times staff

Imagine being a senior with several after school obligations such as afterschool activities and work. I got to sit down with a graduating senior at Watertown High School and was able to get many tips and tricks on how to survive, and how she keeps the balance between her school work and afterschool activities.

Ana Scott went to Hosmer Elementary School in Watertown where she enjoyed being with her friends and learning new things everyday. According to Ana, balancing her afterschool activities with school is hard, and the way that she tends to deal with it is with some good time-management skills.

Ana works at Francis Food Mart in Watertown, Mass. There she spends her time as a cashier and helps customers.
“Working in a small business has taught me to connect to the customers and have good relationships with my bosses,” she said.

Aside from Francis Food Mart, Ana is a current member of the Watertown Children’s Theatre committee. She is currently working as an assistant stage manager for the upcoming musical, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” She helps out the director by taking notes about blocking, signs the actors in and out of the building, and commits to a lot of more responsibility.

When relating WCT to Francis Food Mart, Ana compares them by saying, “WCT is more of a fun activity, whereas Francis is there to help me save up.”

Being in her last year of high school, Ana is preparing for her future, and starting her application process for college. When asked what year was her favorite at Watertown High School, Ana, without hesitation, said it is her senior year, simply because of the freedom students are given at this time.

Although Ana says she is “excited to see what’s next” and ready to move onto the later steps of her life, she said that, “I’ll miss the community, but I won’t miss the school as a whole.”
