San Luis AWC students honor multiculturalism
Students at Arizona Western College in San Luis came together Wednesday afternoon to celebrate being multicultural and multilingual.
The third multilingual student expo allowed students to share their culture through song, dance and public speaking.
“I think it’s important to celebrate multiculturalism considering that we’re all made up of different religions, different ethnicities and we all have our different traditions and customs," said AWC student Camila Borquez. "I think we can all learn from each other and embrace our diversity to avoid discrimination and things like that.”
Some students dressed in traditional Mexican clothing and shared Mexican snacks including elote, or corn on the cob.
"With a simple conversation with another person that has different beliefs, a different ethnicity or a different culture, you can learn a lot," said student Rodolfo Osuna. "You can learn new things, you understand another person's point of view and you can meet new people and visit new places where you can embrace diversity."
