All throughout the year, there have been some amazing, dedicated students. Those who possess those awesome leadership skills, those who have an exceptional community service record, or that person who is just an awesome friend or a great role model. Or maybe, even that teacher who doesn’t get mad if you chew gum in class.

The first time I saw Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert was at a friend’s house. It was placed noticeably on the ground (among a few other things). Since then, I remembered it as the cover with the pieces of pasta that formed the title. A few months later, I was recommended the novel, having been told that it is an account about a woman traveling to three different countries: Italy, India, and Indonesia. I immediately bought the book afterwards, but months flew by again, and decided to read the synopsis once more. The realization that the book is nonfiction displeased me. I’m not fond of nonfiction novels (even the great ones), as it doesn’t really provide that “imaginary escape”. Even so, I gave Eat Pray Love a try and fell in love with it.

You nominated & you voted. Your Warrior of the Month is… JASON COSTA! Jason was nominated for being “always smiling and being such a positive role model, as well as his involvement in student council.”
From what I’ve learned, at school, Jason Costa is involved in the vocal ensemble, the school planning council, and is president of the student council. Meanwhile in the community, Jason still does a lot of volunteering at his church despite his current disability. He hopes to soon raise awareness in the community about cancer and spinal cord injuries, and help those with similar disability, youth in particular, to cope with it and share his experiences. Jason also loves reading, music, and spending time with friends.
