In their own words

My first time coming to Two Rivers I was really shy and then I felt welcome. It's kind of weird talking online now and there are technical difficulties and it’s kind of confusing to me. It was weird talking online first... Sometimes it is just hard to keep up with everything in the class, and I have to go to office hours. I don't like talking in front of everybody on Zoom. 

I have grown since last year. I asked why we were celebrating Christopher Columbus; he didn't do anything good for us. Number one hit took slaves to the king. Also he called them children. He just thinks they are ignorant. He tried to put them in a zoo. Now I know why they pulled down his statue… He just took advantage of the people and they did not do anything wrong.
