I am a freshman at the University of Minnesota. I just started my second semester and I am loving most of my classes. My intended major is French and Italian Studies, with a possible minor in either Chinese or Japanese. I plan on teaching French at my old high school, North Community High, and translating part time. I am invovled in a lot of groups and clubs, like Vocies Merging which is spoken word, Salsa, and Tango.
Why are you interested in Students Speak Out?
The reason I want to participate in this project is because as a student I am directly affected by what they do to my education system. I can say my system because Im the one who has to change along with it, not nessacaraily the people who are altering it. Also I am tired of everyone saying that these changes are for the best interest of the students, and most of them havent walk a day in the life of a modern day students and wont. So I feel when they can live the life I live and say its too easy then they can change my whole world, and clue me in on what im doing wrong.
Shanaye -- please make sure to check out the new R.T. Rybak post and respond! Request to be his friend, too, please. We want to hook him on the power of SSO. Boost his excitement about it so he'll keep coming back!

Hi Shanaye...I'm making a short movie about SSO and I was wondering if you'd be willing to do a really quick interview...I sent an email with all the details to you and the other commentators. Let me know if you're interested/can do this!
Nice...is it a lot harder than high school work, so far? (At Southwest, in-coming seniors have to read three books, take notes and write three papers over the summer...that's probably nothing compared to college)
