Student, Champs - Charter High School of Arts - Multimedia and Performing, Class of 2016,
CHAMPS is the island of misfit toys, but somehow we all work together. Everyone is a little bit off, a little bit weird, but that's what makes it so great. There is diversity at my school like no other and I think a CHAMPS student is a great and real example of the modern day teenager - kids that may mess up, they may not be perfect, kids that may dress a little weird or look a little weird, it's all okay at CHAMPS. Although Van Nuys, CA is not the most inviting place in the world, CHAMPS kids make it tolerable and CHAMPS is piece of heaven in an island of dirt (Van Nuys).
