The Power of Place

Just Be Yourself

Home is where you feel the most comfortable. Fenn has become a place where I spend a lot of my time and where I feel safe. The place at Fenn would defiantly be the baseball field. I am very comfortable at that field because I have spent countless hours playing on that field. Two outs, the score is 3-4 in the bottom of the seventh inning. The pitcher throws the ball, the ump calls strike and the final batter struck out, and Fenn wins the tournament. If I had been nervous, if I had no support from my classmates and teachers, I could’ve dropped the ball and had my classmates make fun of me. This would have not made Fenn a second home to me. I have been at Fenn for the last 6 years of my life. Fenn has been has always ways been pushing people to be more and more of them selfs and not try to be someone they are not. I feel that this is a key component to the power of Place. At the baseball field I fell even more like my self. I have be at Fenn for 6 years and played baseball for 4 of those years. I have had countless practices and many games on that field, I have made errors and hit doubles on that field.  You can visit many places over your lifetime, but after every trip, you will always be excited to come back home.
