Humans of Sophomore Honors: Gabriel Martinez

I interviewed Gabe about his happiest and saddest moments, his goals, the proudest moment of his life, and something people wouldn't know about him just by looking.

By Joseph M. from Eureka High School in California

“Something you wouldn’t know just by looking at me is that my grandpa is from El Salvador, so I am part Hispanic.”

“My goals for this year are to maintain at least a 3.5 GPA and to help my football team win 8 games or more.”

“The happiest moment in my life is whenever I play sports because I love sports. The saddest moment of my life was moving away from my friends in Washington when I was little. “

“The proudest moment in my life is when I was elected a captain for my football team”

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
