Looking into the reflection: Reflecting back on who we are
December 13, 2016
Reflecting back on who we are and what makes us that person gives insight into what RB students are like. Every student is different in their own way. As RB students, we change throughout the time we spend here. We lose friends, gain friends, meet new people, and along the way our personalities change and so do our interests.
Recently, students we interviewed reflected on who they are and what makes them that person.
“I’m fun, shy, and also awkward. I am friendly, too. I guess my friends made me who I am. They are fun and weird and that’s who I am,” said sophomore Michael Escobar. “I tried to change myself for the better when I realized I wasn’t coming out to be the person I wanted to be. My goal is to be a photographer, so I take a photography class.”
Environment has an effect on who a person is and who they become.
“I would say I’m social, pushy at times. Not living in the suburbs and having to grow up quick shaped me into the person I am,” said freshman Brandon Aguilar, who grew up in the city.
For many, what they want to do in the future speaks to who they are.
“Family is important to me and I want to be able to take care of them. One of my goals is to go into the military,” said Aguilar.
In some cases, students say they became who they are by the things they want in life.
“I am fun, eccentric, creative and very humorous. Root beer and chicken wings changed my life forever; it made me who I am today. It was magical. I may never know why, but it did. My goal in life is to win an Oscar, but I am not yet near that goal,” said sophomore Joseph Kelly.
