North High is Better Together

Hey! This is Patricia and Sera, the team leaders from North High’s International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Action Campaign Team. We’re a month into this project and are so amazed at how well it’s gone – especially between our team members.

When we put this team together, we had no clue how well we’d all work together. Most of us had known each other for years, but only as the same faces we’d seen in our classes.

But little did we know, we brought together a wonderful group of people that are all so hardworking and dedicated to this cause. As team leaders, it makes us very proud to watch our team grow and learn with each other.

We had a few bumps in the road because, of course, not everything will be perfect. We had quite the argument over our project topic and a recent argument over the color of a slide background. But large or small, we are glad to say that our team can work out any issue that comes our way.

We are so proud and thankful for our team members and the atmosphere our team created. We’re like a family. We may argue, but together we can do so much and get along so well.

We have no doubt that Team North will put forth the best that we can do!!
