Segura’s extra-curricular activities included membership in the Beta Club throughout all four years of high school. He was also the manager for the junior varsity soccer team during the fall season of his sophomore year.
“The biggest memories that stick out in my mind during my time at Lincoln Charter were definitely both my junior and senior proms,” he observed. “Both were eventful and were some of the best memories I made with my friends. Some other memories were the parties I had at my friend’s house. We always had multiple parties, and he always took us out on his side-by-side ATV. Without those fun events, high school would just not have been the same for me.”
Come August, Segura will be off to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He plans to earn a bachelor’s degree there, majoring in political science and minoring in either Spanish or history.
“As of now,” he added, “my future career goals are to become an attorney. Ever since I was really young, I remember always wanting to be an attorney because of the impact they created in the legal realm and how they studied history, ethics, political and government systems and how laws are implemented upon citizens. All of those subjects have interested me since I was able to read.”
And Segura talked about his fellow graduates.
“My senior class of 2019 is not just a group of classmates that I cherish, but they are so much more,” he said. “I consider them family because of how long I’ve known them. Many of my classmates I’ve known since elementary school, some for as long as 13 years. They are lifetime friends that will always be a part of my life. I wish them all nothing but the best in their future endeavors and hope they find success and happiness in all their lives.
“Some words of wisdom I would like to share that I have learned as a high school student is that it takes a lot––and I mean a lot––of sacrifice to be successful in high school,” he added. “Be prepared to have many sleepless nights and to constantly stress over projects and difficult assignments. Make sure to not procrastinate, because all procrastination does is add unhealthy stress, and it ages you earlier. Also, be prepared in that you will not be able to attend every social event or happening your friends have planned. In the later years of high school, it just isn’t possible with all the academic and extra-curricular responsibilities you already have. If you work as well, then that means even less time to yourself. But just know: it is all worth it because of how all these responsibilities mature you and prepare you for the real world.”
