About This Quiz

Some people say that your school days are the best days of your life - and while it's actually not true that people's life experiences typically peak in their teens (thank goodness), there is a grain of truth in this saying. That's because some of the greatest experiences of your life come from the glory of really finding out who you are and where you excel, and best of all, locating a tribe of likeminded people who not only care about excellence in the same field, but also truly value you for your commitment to and talent for that area. While the lucky find this in elementary school and the less lucky have to wait for college or beyond, the first time many of us find this is in high school.

If you're great at sports, then it's simple: you get that validation by playing on a team. If however, your talents lie in a more cerebral, musical, political, or artistic area, then clubs are where you're going to find what you need. From learning public speaking and debate to unlocking the marvels of mathematics to making movies to playing in a band for the first time, it's a magical moment when you realize you've found Your People. They may not look like you, but they have a heart that speaks to yours.
