Spanish and English
What are some of your hopes and dreams?
My hope is to graduate from high school and get into college and university. That’s my biggest goal in life. I would like to be a computer engineer.
What has helped you the most in working toward your goals?
School, doing homework. Being prepared for everything. When the teacher gives an assignment and you make sure you understand all the directions and do it well.
What’s something you’ve been learning about recently?
I learned many things in school, like how to write an essay, how to write a speech, how to make videos.
How is your home language useful in your life?
I use Spanish in all my classes, when I get confused, or need to catch up. Also when I work, some people don’t speak English, so I help them. Also when new students come to this school, I help them talk to the teacher and do their homework.
