“This year in STUCO has been really exciting, especially since we had such a great group of officers,” senior Gabriella Ramirez said.
Ramirez is happy to be back to having more school activities after the pandemic including this year’s Homecoming.
Ramirez along with STUCO helped design, set up, and manage the event.
“It was nice to finally be back together at homecoming with all my friends in one place. The music that night was great and everyone was excited to celebrate,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez has taken part in multiple clubs and extracurricular activities, such as the Spanish club, Asian Pacific American Community, Tea Club, and used to be a part of the Statesmen Strings. “Even though I’m no longer in orchestra, I had the best times in Statesmen Strings during freshman and sophomore year,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez learned Spanish in two years and is an officer in the Spanish National Honor Society.
“I started learning it sophomore year, and I’m pretty proficient now, so I can talk to my grandparents who speak mostly Spanish,” Ramirez said. “It’s [Spanish National Honor Society] fun, but we haven’t gotten to go much this year, because we just started, and we’re all graduating.”
Ramirez has also founded a club throughout high school called The Forum. The Forum brings people to talk about different political and social issues.
“It was good to have a space where people talk about political views,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez appreciates the teachers in the school and the support they give when help is needed. “I have never asked for help and not gotten it from the teachers,” Ramirez said.
“Outside of school, walking every street in Webster is what I am most proud of over the course of my high school career,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez plans to go to the University of Missouri with an undecided degree, as she will figure out her path as soon as she gets to college.
