By Sonny Setton This past summer, I went to work at a camp. However, I am naturally a quiet and shy person. I normally have a hard time meeting new people. This past summer was actually very fun because of all the people I met. I became close with my co-counselor who happened to be very popular in the camp. Once I saw how social he was, I said to myself, “You can do this.” We immediately became very good friends. Over the course of the summer, I met so many new and wonderful people. Before I knew it, I became popular in camp too. I came out of the summer with at least 20 new great friends. It just goes to show you. If you just step out of your comfort zone, great things will happen.
