Plaza Voices: Numb3rs in My Life

Phot of Plaza program activity leader Warren R.

Warren R., a Plaza program Activities Leader, writes:

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved math. My mom always took me to the wet market back home in the Philippines, and in my head I would calculate almost everything, from the price of the buko (coconut) juice I drank, to the change that we were supposed to get when we paid for our tricycle (3-wheel public utility vehicle) transportation. I carried this love for math into every endeavor I took on.

Plaza Voices: Stories of Integration

Desiree S. of the Ross-Barnum branch writes:

Moving away from one’s home can be one of the most challenging life experiences. Having come to Denver via Oklahoma City myself just one year ago, I can certainly vouch for there being a period of readjustment -- one has to discover all new neighborhoods, meet all new friends and perhaps reconnect with old ones. In short, one must create an everyday existence that is different from what was there before. But what about adjusting to a place where both the language and the culture are completely foreign?
