Humans of CHS: October 2019 Edition
"As a tribute to the social media blog "Humans of NY", the Falcon Press staff decided to create a spin-off entitled, "Humans of CHS". Staff members will roam the hall each month until they find a "human" with an inspirational bit of advice, unusual story to tell, or who simply wants to chat about life.
“I am Colombian, and unfortunately, everyone has their stigmas about Colombia. In pop culture, it is known for its violence and illegal substances and madness. Because of this, my parents made the decision to move to America when my sister was two. Most of my family moved to the United States when things started to become worse. Ever since then we have lived here. We were able to visit Colombia again recently, because it is not as bad now as it was back then. Despite the rough times my family has been through, I am proud of my Hispanic heritage. Every day, I come to school with different types of homemade food. I speak Spanish fluently, which has caused my to excel in Spanish courses throughout the school. It is cool to bring my culture to America.”
