The Hispanic culture in the United States has grown tremendously over the years, making Spanish one of the most spoken languages around the world. Each student celebrates Hispanic Heritage month with a different meaning.
“This month shows people how rich my culture is and how hard we have been working to be where we are (politics, science, arts, cinema,)” senior Camila Paez said.
This celebration lasts from September 15 until October 15. The language department and the Hispanic community prepare an inclusive event for all.
“We would love to have a performance from the students singing a song from Celia Cruz or even Selena,” Spanish teacher Ibis Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez came up with a different and innovative proposal for this event, to have a talent show in Spanish on campus, where Hispanic students can sing, act and dance, all in their native language.
All of this motivates us to be part of it no matter where we are from. Seeing other cultures express themselves and stand out on campus makes us proud.
