ASPIRA Club brings students’ cultures together: Culture Collision 2015

By: Angela Maure Since 1961, ASPIRA has served nearly half a million youth, in over 200 schools and 78 communities across the country. ASPIRA is now one of the largest national Hispanic organizations in the country with young people from all backgrounds. It’s the only national organization dedicated primarily to the education and development of Latino youth. Long Beach High School’s diverse atmosphere inspires students  to join ASPIRA. Many students fear their cultural backgrounds may be criticized; however, in the club students openly tell others about their nationalities, while they indulge to learn about different cultures. Today’s students struggle with the heavy weight of both school work and searching for colleges, so ASPIRA is the perfect after school activity that encourages students to gain educational experiences, explore college opportunities, and make friends! Gabe Aristobal, the Pulpitarian of the ASPIRA club, states “the club embraces diversity and welcomes every students with open arms, The people are very nice, they don’t treat anyone like an outsider. It’s a very nice club.” The club also holds field trips to universities that are holding college fairs. This gives seniors  and juniors an opportunity to look for a college they want to apply for. Meanwhile, freshmen and sophomores can get a head­-start and learn about colleges that they might be interested in. … Continue reading
