There are some students at Eastside Catholic High School who have been a part of the community for a while, but have unique backgrounds, sometimes even foreign ones.
One such student is senior Judy Tu. Judy grew up in Taiwan and came to America two years ago. She is an incredibly hardworking and sincere student and positive person to be around.
She adds a lot to the Eastside community and the senior class, and it is hard to believe she wasn’t born here.
“It was pretty terrifying to learn in a totally different language and system,” she said of moving here. “I struggled a lot the first year I was here. However, things have gotten better and better each year.
“Now, I don’t usually have big problems, and I’m glad that I was able to overcome the challenges, because I love it here!”
It is amazing to hear something like this because nobody who has known Judy could have ever imagined that she was terrified or struggling. She exemplifies courage, determination and grace, and we are so glad she’s here.
