Edward Llanos

Well, my name is Edward and I'm a high school senior who is not looking forward to graduating. I don't know about everyone else, but school is fun, at least that's what I make of it. Here in Queens, we have more than what any borough has. First off, the city is less then 15 minutes away and Queens is the only borough where 147 different languages are spoken. Beat that Brooklyn, Bronx or Manhattan. So, if there are that many languages, there are that many different kinds of people, no need to go to another borough. Queens is where you need to be!!!!!!!!

My School is Known for All the Wrong Reasons

Friday, June 30, 2006

Ten years ago my high school was rated one of the twelve most dangerous in New York City. Back when I was in junior high I heard it was still like that, that people got stabbed, jumped, even killed. It sounded more like I was going to jail instead of a school. Now that I graduated I see the school as a safer place. But I wasn’t sure if the school actually was safer or because I’m older now I know how to defend myself.
