"People here are pretty accepting, no matter what you look like, no matter what your sexual orientation is. You're not going to get bullied, you're not going to get made fun of because people are just here for school, to be educated and create relationships."

To me, diversity is important because it allows us to change and move forward and adapt. It allows anyone to go almost anywhere and do anything.

I love that our students are first generation, that they are ESL, that they are poor, that 10 percent have disabilities, that we have high school students, that we have grandmas and grandpas, and when they come here, they learn how fabulous they are.
