Hunter students have such amazing stories to tell. Their own.

Though I know this is so, I never fail to be surprised by the odds overcome and the talents displayed.

My advanced reporting class’s biographies prompt this reflection. There you can read about students who overcame dysfunctional families and students who credit their success to strong families.

You can find the classic immigrant success story repeated in tales of migration from Sicily, El Salvador, Belarus and Honduras.

One student discovered her vocation in a comic book; another in her diary. One used Tae Kwon Do to conquer depression and the bullies who plagued him.

They are musicians, actors, athletes and crusaders for social justice. Most are exploring the possibility of a career in news.

Be sure to read all about them on their blogs.
