“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
When I was sixteen, I had three loves: martial arts, video games, and this really cute boy who sat next to me in Algebra II. As I entered manhood, I realized that only two of these matched society's image of what a "real man" should love, so I hid my crush and started dating a girl to blend in.
— Serge Vartanov
Each year we ask our classmates a straightforward, simple question taken from the lines of a poem by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Mary Oliver.
We share with you intimate and candid responses to this question, "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
