EHS’s Julia Globisz on her high school experience

Natalie Mizeracki, Reporter

I interviewed Esperanza High School junior Julia Globisz. She was asked numerous questions about EHS, her experience here, her plans after graduation, and some personal questions as well.

What are your post-graduation plans?

My post grad plans are to go to a free two year community college where they have extended medical industry knowledge. After I graduate with my associate degree, I am planning to transfer to a four year university in California. I plan on majoring in biology or chemistry, which are good majors for Pre-Med. My life goal is to become a neurosurgeon.

If you want to go to college, which one and why?
I’m gonna go to Cypress College because it is popular for its medical field classes.

After getting a sufficient reply, I then moved on to the next question.

In all of your years of schooling, which has been your favorite class and why?
My favorite class has been my math classes because the answers are always black and white, there is no room for hesitation. Math is logical, and that’s why it makes sense to me.

What are you looking forward to doing this summer?
This summer, since the majority of my classes are AP, I need a solid break from studying. Instead, I am going to take a relaxing art class for my grad requirements. I will also be spending time with family and friends, as well as celebrating my birthday.

In the next question, I asked Julia to name some funny high school memories she has made.
Most of my funny memories at EHS involve my best friend, Natalie Mizeracki. We like to laugh about our exes and eat lunch together. I remember the day that I came by your house for your birthday. After coming back from school, we had an amazing time completely impromptu. We dressed in each other’s swimsuits and had a chicken fight in the pool.

Would you recommend Esperanza High School to a friend? If so, what are some benefits to going to school here?
Yes, I would recommend EHS to a friend. Some benefits of going to school here include the Medical Academy that’s not found anywhere else. People are not as snobby and rich as in YLHS. Here, the majority of students constitute a wide range of immigrants and have an average income. Also, the school makes it its goal to involve students in a big variety of extracurricular activities.

As a freshman, traditional school came to a sudden stop in March, how has that affected you socially and academically? Is it behind you now, or something you are still dealing with?
This was a big problem for me. When the pandemic started, I was a freshman. I did not have any classes in person and barely knew anyone. Online school contributed to my low self esteem and huge anxiety for the upcoming year, in which I attended in person. For the most part it is behind me, however, that period of time put a big mark in my life, since this was when I started a brand new chapter in my life: high school.

Are you involved with any extra-curricular activities, such as sports, clubs, out of school activities?
If yes, what are they, how long have you been involved, how do they impact you?
I was involved in the East Swim Club hosted at Esperanza high school, but I had to give it up due to an enormous amount of work from AP classes. I was also in HOSA, but when the club became uninteresting, I stopped going. Not much impact due to the short time frame in which I was a part of the clubs. However, I still like the school events in which I can make social connections, like the football game I attended with you.

What are your three favorite things about yourself?
Ooh I’m gonna boast now. I am goal-driven, which basically means ambitious. The second one is self-disciplined, and the third is hard working.

How have you changed as a person from your first day of high school to today?
I have developed confidence in higher class academics. I cherish the friendships that I have developed at EHS. I have also learned hard lessons in life, broke up some relationships, and gained the trust of those that supported me through difficult times.

For the last question, I asked Julia “If you could go back in time and change one thing since the beginning of this school year, what would it be?”

She answered with “I would’ve liked to be cautious about whom I trust, and therefore protect my heart from unnecessary dramas.”
