Humans of Capo

Humans of Capo is a spin-off of the popular blog Humans of New York, a compilation of interesting stories from people with many different backgrounds.

“As we grow up, we learn about all these historic events, both good and bad, as well as a painted picture about human life now. I heard about all these things going on, and thought to myself ‘I know i’m young, but maybe I can start making small changes, or at the very least develop that kind of mindset.’ Just thinking that made me feel inspired; like I could actually do something when I’m older, and so from then on i’ve carried that mindset.” –  Hannah Kirby (Freshman)

 

“I think that it’s extremely important for youth to get involved and educated on activism and political issues. I’m a human rights and environmental activist, meaning that I advocate for the equal rights of oppressed groups and our damaged environment. Being an activist comes with the responsibility of educating yourself and others and spreading your passion to other young people. In our current world, change in the correct direction is essential, and doing things such as phone-banking, signing petitions, donating and participating in movements can make a change.” – Rose Akbari (Sophomore)

 

“Currently, my greatest struggle right now is just keeping up with all of my schoolwork, balancing time between school and my personal life. I’m in six academic classes, ASB and I’m a part of four club boards. Two of the four I’m president, and I’m also included in CSF and NHS. I’m trying to balance my time between all of my school activities. At times it can feel very overwhelming, while trying to maintain time for myself by spending time with my family or friends.” – Ryan Hansen (Junior)

 

“The biggest struggle I’ve encountered is being adopted. Trying to figure out what’s done from nothing is stressful. You’re kind of figuring out who you are through time, experiences, friends and relationships. Not knowing what or who your parents are is scary, and it’s always on your mind. There are thoughts like, where do I get my looks from? Or do I look more like my mom or dad? But at the end of the day, family are the people who make you better and family doesn’t always have to be blood.” – Natasha Landrum (Senior)
