Students at GW have spent the last several weeks celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Included in the festivities was “Fiestasa” a party celebrating Hispanic culture with food, music and dance.
“Settings where Latinos are not a majority, Latinos can feel like their culture is not appreciated, or they can feel very isolated. And I think celebrating Latino Heritage Month gives them a chance to express themselves and really settle into their culture,” said Yessenia Gonzales, Captain of GW Fuego, the Latin dance student organization.
Other celebrations throughout the month, such as “Café con Leche,” a Latino-focused spoken word open mic, created a space for students to appreciate Hispanic culture at GW.
