Level 2 - Rachel Le
“Language is the power to connect people to others and as world language learners, we are able to use this power to understand and respect others.”
Level 3 - Kolby Cameron
“I continue learning world languages because they connect me to others around the globe and help me learn about and interact with people in my community.”
Level 4 - Josephine McPhaull
“Having a comfortability around different languages allows me to meet new people I might not have direct lines of communication with.”
AP - Samuel Hunt
