El Tesoro // the treasure

Around this time last year, I applied for a yearbook editor position mostly just because I felt like I should try to get more involved in school. Up until that point, I had done things in school here and there, but I spent most of my time on independent projects or doing activities separate from the school community. At the time, I knew that being a yearbook editor would be fun, but I didn’t register how much I’d learn during the year.
Since August, so many hours have been spent in that small room. Eight computers and mountains of papers, highlighters and SD cards scattered across long tables, snack-filled cabinets and a questionable mini-fridge– this is the place I now call a home. And nothing could compare to that incredible feeling of finishing the yearbook and shipping in those pages for printing.

The eight of us went up to San Francisco for an evening, many of us with our cameras to continue capturing the world through our eyes. Got some footage, ate some vegan Indochinese food, savored some insanely good milk tea.

My fellow editors (and delightful advisor), thank you all so much for an unforgettable nine months. You’ve inspired me to immerse myself in creating things. I’m so excited to see where each of us is headed next year and beyond.

Talk to me!
