Letter From the Editor

Dear Readers,

I am very happy to announce The Daily Hawk's second issue of the 2021/22 school year. The Daily Hawk serves as a vehicle of self-expression, connection with the EABH community, and a source of entertainment. It has a little bit of everything, ranging from playful crosswords to complex opinion articles on current global events. 

 

Our idea is to create opportunities and learning incentives within the club, mainly by integrating our members into city-related events and exercising journalistic skills, like reporting, interviewing, public speaking, investigating, writing, among many others. This city has a lot to offer, as do the EABH students. The Daily Hawk wants to give its participants the independence and freedom to "go out in the world" (as much as possible, considering the circumstances) and let them figure out for themselves who they are and what they believe in.

 

It comes as no surprise that I consider information to be one of the most powerful tools one can possess in today's world. Knowledge, understanding, and critical thinking goes a long way in determining whom you aspire to be and what are your values. And, especially during our middle and high school years, we must start figuring out or at least practicing "seeing" things for ourselves and deciding where we stand. It is simply crucial and a true game-changer to know what's happening around us, have our own take on it, and always seek to further understand the issues that unite and tear us apart. After all, that's what writing is: an attempt to recognize the world for what it is, while still offering our own perspective towards it.

 

And that's what we have been working tirelessly to make The Daily Hawk about.

Thank you, 

Beatriz Cicci.
