Interviewing a Transferee


Being a junior high schooler isn’t always the easiest. Students have to overcome a long series of challenges, including past personal experiences, peer pressure, and much more. All of these challenges are made even harder when you have to transfer to a new school where you don’t know anyone. One Parks student who knows exactly how this feels like is MiraElla Yeo. Yeo is a newly transferred student, having come to Parks Junior High this school year from Beechwood. Despite having to leave her old school behind and adapt to a new setting, she has been able to make the best of this new situation and make new friends. Below is an interview with the student.

What has been the hardest thing for you so far in junior high?

The hardest thing for me to overcome so far is getting used to a new school. With all the new changes to process, it has become an exciting yet nervous experience.”

What do you look for in friendships? 

“I look for people who share the same views and interests as me, and can, with me, mutually understand each other.”

What is your definition of “trust”? 

My definition of trust is feeling comfortable with a person enough that you can share anything with them and be yourself without a superficial shield around who you are.”

What kind of person do you strive to be?

 “I strive to be a person who is self-sufficient and capable of achieving whatever they set their mind on. I also want to become a person who people can feel comfortable with and confide in. I like being there for the people I care about.”

What do you wish to accomplish?

“I want to accomplish creating a steady but memorable life for myself. A life filled with comfort but many fun moments is what I want.”

Dylan Carranza, Contributor
Dylan Carranza was born on August 22nd, 2010, the same year that another great music era had come to an end. Dylan was born and raised in Fullerton, growing up with five siblings, three sisters, and (technically) two brothers, both being absent. Growing up, Dylan had always played volleyball, a sport that was introduced to her by her cousins at a very young age. She has always been creative, from drawing to composing lyrics. Dylan takes a great interest in horror. She’d always watch horror movies, not affected by the graphic scenes on the screen. She'd take any chance to watch a horror movie, that being many of her interests. She has Aztec blood in her, causing her to believe and live up to some of the beliefs the Native Americans had believed in. Another thing or two that interested Dylan was guitar and criminology, leading her career interests down the music career path or taking on the criminology field path. Her future interests include music producing, being an investigator, or being in a band. A quote that Dylan decides to live up to is, “Live your life to the fullest because you never know when it will end.”
