I walked into the first meeting that I’d been to with something that told me I wasn’t going to enjoy it, but when I walked it that room, I was greeted by one high school student, Brayden. Brayden told me that he goes to Klein Cain and that it is an amazing school.
He explained to me what this club was and that I was going to enjoy every single bit of Culture 4 Caring. When we started to talk about what this club was–led by students is what caught my ear. Most of the clubs let teachers or staff make most of the decisions, but when I think about Culture 4 Caring, I see a club that lets student voice stand out.
Culture 4 Caring is something that makes me happy and makes me feel welcome in the district. This club was made to make students feel welcome in the Klein ISD district and not feel that they are out of place or they stand out in a way that some people may think is bad. I used to be one of those kids who would get kicked out of friend groups because I wasn’t a certain way or I didn’t do the things that they did, and I lost some friends during that time. I realize now that being like all the others kids can sometimes be a bad thing.
When it comes to people noticing you, people will start making stereotypes and they think you are like all the other people in the school, when your really not. You’re different from all the other people and you want to make that show, show everybody that you have something that makes you, you! Culture 4 Caring has changed the way I see school and they way I experience school. Culture 4 Caring has made a huge impact on my life.
