“Freshmen Problems” by Manuel Hernandez

Freshmen Problems: Can’t Participate in School Activities and Peer Pressure:

Another downside that comes with being a freshman is not having the ability to participate in certain school activities. Some of these activities include those that only some grades, such as juniors and seniors, can participate in. An example of this would be GradBash, an end of the year field trip for seniors. The other activities that freshmen don’t participate in are those they don’t want to participate in because they are scared they will be judged by the seniors. These activities include Prom, Winter Formal, End of Year field trips, etc. Another huge problem is peer pressure. Peer pressure is when someone does something that harms them because their “friends” are doing it. Because they don’t want to feel left out, they do what their friends pressure them to do. This leads freshmen to partake in doing drugs, and having sex at a young age. Peer pressure usually comes from the freshmen following the seniors and what they do. Some seniors do drugs and do illegal things, and the freshmen following them can partake in those activities. Freshmen affected by peer pressure usually stop caring about their gradesm, which affects their future majorly.
