My 5 living hero’s

Posted by Lucy on December 3, 2019 at 6:10pm 0 Comments

1. Ringo Starr: I consider Ringo Starr a hero because my family love to listen to the classic rock band the Beatles. I have grown up with the Beatles music and I idolize them as musicians and as people.

2. Mom: my mom is one of my biggest heroes because even when she is stressed at work an super busy, she still makes time for me. The other reason is I wouldn’t be anywhere close to black belt if it weren’t for her. The first time I came to the dojang was because she wanted me to try…

My Community Service Project

Posted by Corwin Silverman on July 22, 2019 at 11:30am 0 Comments

I chose to do an environmental project for my community service. To make the most tangible impact, I looked at local organizations. Ultimately, I chose to work with Mountains to Sound Greenway and pull blackberries.

I have done similar projects before, but this time, I attempted to recruit people from MIMA and the high school Green Team in advance. Unfortunately, no one from either group actually came, though I am…
