At iSucceed, we have countless incredible students working hard to earn their diplomas. That’s why we take a moment to shine the light on them in these blog series.
This month, we’re shining the light on a sophomore named Cadence Posey. To help get to know her, we asked her a few questions. Here’s what she said:
What kinds of activities are you interested in outside of school?
Softball, Volunteer work, and baking. I play softball for Stealth Fastpitch Organization
What are some other things you like to do?
I love to bake cakes. I mostly like to decorate them rather than eating them.
The work you’re doing for retired veterans is incredible! We would love to know more about what your goals and plans are for this community service area.
So where I live there is no funding for the homeless and I have family friends who are now homeless. This subject hits close to home for my family. We have always been passionate about helping the community especially the homeless. I have organized a few fundraisers in the past through my team and the money went to families in need.
Why did you become interested in iSucceed?
Well, last year, I was at another online school and the experience wasn’t great. I had some problems with it. I was looking for new programs but none of them seemed right to me. It got to the point where I gave up and told my parents I would just go back to public school. It came to the end of the summer and we had a garage sale. This family came and we got to talk to them. One of their sons told us that he does iSucceed and he explained it to us. I was so excited that I ran inside and jumped online to check it out. I was so happy that I didn’t have to go to public school.
What were some of the challenges you faced when you first started iSucceed?
I think the biggest thing for me was finding a good schedule. At first, I thought 10 lessons would be easy and I was a little bit lazy about it and had to rush Saturday to get it all done.
What were some benefits you found through iSucceed?
With my sports, I have a lot more flexibility and I am able to balance sports and school.
When you started at iSucceed, what type of goals did you have in regards to your education?
My goal was to not get behind and to make a good work habit. I sometimes get very unmotivated because I am at home. That obviously is not a good thing so my goal was to work through that.
Do you have any advice for new iSucceed students?
“I would say to make a good work schedule so that you don’t have to worry about getting all of your work in at the last minute. Stay caught up in your work because its not fun to be behind when the last week comes along. Also don’t be afraid to talk to your teachers because they are alway there to help.” Cadence Posey, sophomore
