SGA convention: the rest is still unwritten Lauren Ramirez STAFF WRITER

A select group of PPCHS students walk into a building to find a crazy scene laid out before them, some of the people around them are dressed in business suits, while others are bouncing around a beach ball or jumping on an inflatable bouncy house. On Friday, February 14th, a group of students in the Pembroke Pines Charter High School Student Government Association (SGA) attended the Florida Association of Student Council convention (FASC). FASC was a three day convention that

helped the students learn new techniques and leadership skills. The theme for this year’s FASC was “The rest is still unwritten”, based off the popular Natasha Bedingfield song Unwritten. “We chose this theme to show the students that it is never too late to make a difference. The rest of your life is laid out before you, completely unwritten, and only you hold the pen”, says FASC president Garrett Johnson. The students arrived in Lake City, Florida on Friday afternoon after a long six hour bus ride. After getting settled into their hotel rooms, they headed out to

the convention. The first day of the convention burst with fun; students got the chance to let out their inner child as they jumped around in bounce houses and raced through inflatable obstacle courses while party music like the cha-cha slide played in the background from a DJ. Students had the opportunity to meet students from other student government associations from across the state and made many new friends. After dinner, they went to a general meeting with everyone at the convention. The best part of the night began later on though, when a hypnotist

performed an entertaining act. PPCHS student government delegate Janine Legaspi was called up as a volunteer during the show, “It was a crazy experience. I never before thought that hypnotizing was a real thing, but when I took part in this show I was shocked to find that the performer could actually hypnotize the other volunteers and me” Legaspi said. The show ended at around 11 p.m. and the tired students went back to their hotel rooms to rest up for another long, yet eventful, day.
