I love where I come from: my Mexican background from my parents and the city I was born in, Chicago. A day in my life could be full of totally different things like painting, studying, running, playing sudoku, smiling or quietly thinking. My personality is genuinely quiet, but I want to say that even though I am excited for whatever comes after high school, I am equally excited about spending my senior year at GCE.
I chose GCE because I wanted to be in a place that embraces diversity and different perspectives. Diversity is seen in the student body, but also in the ideas that are growing at the school. Students are encouraged to have confidence in their opinions so that they can have the voices to speak those opinions. Picasso draws his bulls from different perspectives, and classes at GCE use different perspectives to stimulate discussion and deepen knowledge.
