By Rudee Becerra, LCA sophomore

At my old school, I was too nervous or insecure to raise my hand to ask for help. It seemed like I was the only one who didn’t understand what was being taught. The teachers were just academic. They didn’t exude confidence for you to approach them.

When I came to Lighthouse Christian Academy on the West side of Los Angeles, it was really nerve racking because I was a freshman and only knew two people in the whole school. It was intimidated. It seemed like everybody knew each other, but I only had my cousin, Jamie Roman and my friend Magalea Chiesa.

LighthouseChristianAcademyUpon entering my new private school, I had a ton of new student fears. All I wanted to do was make new friends and have a good freshman year.

And that’s exactly what happened.

This school is a family. It’s only 50 students, and everyone knows everybody. The teachers are always there for you whenever you have problems, even it they are from your personal life.

Prior to Lighthouse, I never really paid attention to religion. This school helped me grow closer to God and helped me overcome a lot of things in my life. I have learned that with God, the bad things turn out well in the end.
