World-Wide Vanguards

Why is International week so special to our Vanguards?

Frontline: Why is international week important to the school as a whole student body?

Lupita Alvarado: It is important to the student body as a whole because it represents the school’s history, and adds to the fact that the school is so diverse in culture.

FL: How did you do your part to spread information around the school about your culture?

LA: As president of the M.E.Ch.A club, I helped organize Monday’s piñata event. We spread information about that and also of the food we sold.

Michelle Tran: I feel like everyone here isn’t really exposed to their own culture. Like me, I wasn’t taught about my culture growing up, but once I experienced international week my freshman year, it opened my eyes to my culture and got me to be involved. International week allows students who aren’t exposed to their own culture to become involved with learning about their culture.

MT: We set up the game, which was really fun, and we sold food- everyone loves food. Not many people know what food like bánh mì and eggrolls are, so us providing it allows people to try it. Eventually they could go out their way to eat it again and become more exposed to the culture.
