Hey y’all! My name is Ansel Rodriguez, my Nahuatl name is Quiztoc Achcuatli. I am from North East Los Angeles and I identify as Mexica. I see myself as a risk taking leader who engages himself in many different physical activities such as playing basketball, long distance running, and hiking. I attend Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory High School of North America and I am going into my junior year, in fact I’ve been at Anahuacalmecac since the first grade. I really enjoy new experiences and expanding my education, so I always involve my self in different summer programs. Last summer I was proud to be a part of the Han Ban Summer Bridge Program, which was basically a cultural exchange program. My school has this huge project called the personal project that the sophomore class must complete to culminate from the MYP. Recognitions that I have received and I am proud of are running in the half marathon and completing my personal project. I actually have presented publicly, I recited a poem at Self Help Graphics in support of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa. In my future I hope to better my community and continue my education.
One thought on “Ansel’s bio”
Hi Ansel, nice to meet you yesterday. your bio is very well written, although you did not say what your “personal project” is – just curious. It’s great that you are using your poetry skills to advocate for the missing students from Ayotzinapa. I hope to hear some of your poetry while you are at Pitzer.
