If you want to be noticed in your new school, there are a few things you should take into consideration. It might seem hard to achieve, but with my professional view, you'll be just fine.
The first step is obvious, you need to look fresh. Look at a few pictures online of the latest trends, and if your old fashion, grab a magazine.
You don't want to be known as the “annoying new kid” so do as my sister said in our interview “be normal”.
If you want people to notice you, get more involved in school. Join a sport or a club or both. This will help you meet new people and possibly make long lasting friendships.
Learn the layout of your school and study your schedule. You should also check to make sure the classroom number matches the one on your schedule so your not awkwardly walking into the wrong classes on the first day like I was.
The way you walk can also help you be noticed. Sway your shoulders side to side while chewing gum. Never, I repeat never have your backpack fully on. Always have only one strap on or even better, don't wear a backpack. Also make sure to always use your phone in class and talk back to your teacher when they tell you to get off of it.
You have a 99.9% chance of being cool in your new school if you follow all these helpful tips. Good luck!
