* What do you think is the biggest problem facing youth today?
"I believe the biggest problem facing youth today is that most of this generation do not push for their highest potential. Many youth are constantly facing the pressure of maintaining a good education while pursuing other things, such as sports. For many of them, they see it as too difficult or something not worth accomplishing. It is really sad to see teenagers with so much potential in both academics and athletics give up because they choose to compare themselves to other students of higher education. I believe that there are no smart or dumb students; it is all about how well you apply yourself to something you strive to achieve. Laziness is a habit this generation has learned to adopt over the years. I hope that it will soon decrease because if this pattern keeps going, then each generation will suffer. We need to encourage students to excel to their best abilities and not by a standard that their parents or school makes for them."
The students in this weekly feature are selected by officials at their respective high schools. "Student Spotlight" recognizes students of good character who are involved in school or community activities such as athletics, clubs, student government and volunteer work.
