The nervousness of trying something New What were you most nervous about?

The nervousness of trying something new can come often in life. Especially when you’re going 45 minutes down the street to stay at a hotel taken over by teenage kids, and going to classes you know very little about and very few people in. However, it can be a memorable experience and an opportunity to learn something new while showing your creativity. Not to mention, a chance to make new friends. Although many people were nervous, they will leave with more knowledge and a new outlook on journalism.

My nervousness was a sold 5 out of 10 bc I was both nervous and excited." Downton said.
Nadia Sanburn, 11, "I was most nervous about coming in because I didn’t really know what to expect; it's like I went in blind.
