Every morning, I’m greeted with chaos. In the brightly-lit computer lab, there’s a whirlwind of teenage guys rolling around on spinny chairs, yelling jokes, and playing the latest meme clips from their computers. It may not seem like it, but there’s something beautiful going on here. You just have to stop and look.

As editor-in-chief of my high school’s newspaper, I’m in a unique situation. I lead an extracurricular staff of 30 covering the news monthly at an all-boys private school. At times, I’m jealous of most other school newspapers, which have grades as incentives and a class period to meet. But I love the challenge to motivate. It’s an uphill battle, but we’ve figured out a few tricks.

One of those tricks is donuts. Probably half of our staff’s budget has gone toward those delicious, mouth-watering 8-packs of Entenmann’s chocolate donuts at our morning meetings. As the swarm of hungry kids descends upon those circular mounds of dough on our center table, I notice a new face at the meeting and introduce myself. His name is Alex. He’s a short, wide-eyed freshman who nibbles on his donut nervously as I explain to him what we do on staff. He’s unsure of himself, looking away to the floor every couple seconds to break the tension. Since he’s new, I assign him an easy story pitch for the month – a short profile on our student of the issue. Not knowing what he’s getting into, he hesitantly agrees. He jumped right into the new challenge without knowing all the details. I smile, because I’ve known someone like him before. I was him.

I walk over to the other side of the computer lab. Someone is furiously typing away on a Mac desktop with their headphones in. It’s Jack, our Copy Editor. The quiet, no-nonsense sophomore is typing a transcription of his recent interview with our Dean of Students, where Jack challenged him over a recent change to our schedule. Through his skinny face and glasses, I can a passion brewing. He’s been taking on more controversial topics each month, and is beginning to love the reporting process. However, he still chases the validation of the older editors and is still fearful to take more initiative during meetings. But I know his potential—because I was him.

I suddenly feel a jolt in the sides of my stomach and someone scurrying away behind my back. I whip around and see the culprit who “tasered” me. It’s Mike – one of our section editors. His dimpled face is laughing and grinning. I tease him about how his story was “lackluster” last month. He denies it, and he is right considering it made the front page. Despite our scuffles, I’ll admit Mike is a bright, energetic kid. He’s in the middle of his all-important junior year and is gunning for the top job on staff – Editor-in-Chief. He often bites off more than he can chew, trying to impress, trying to edit every story, and taking on 3 or 4 stories per month. I know how to guide him, because a few short months ago, I was him.

I walk to the front of the room. It’s time to start the meeting, so I hush everyone to silence. Taking a look around, I scan the faces of my staff. Some are attentive and bright, some are goofy, others are bored. I used to freeze in this situation and still do sometimes. It’s tough to motivate when I’m stuck in my head, so I put my focus into my staff. And I find out they aren’t so different from me. They have similar worries, drives, and desires, ones that I’ve had at every stage of my life. When you take the time to understand people, they feel valued and confident, believing like they can take on any challenge. That’s when the real magic happens.
