Community Connections: Meet Celia C.
My name is Celia C. and I'm in the 11th grader at South El Monte High School. I would say my school community is a very fun environment to be at because there are lots of sports you can join, lots of clubs, and lots of people you can commune with. The most important thing to know about me is I like going out with my friends and family to have a good time. I really like being outdoors, especially to play softball.
The object that connects to my neighborhood is a softball. The game of Softball connects me to my community, because I've been playing for about eight years and playing encourages me to be in the outdoors. I've also made lots of new friends who live near me and in my community, but who I would have never met unless we played together.
