With Winter out of the way and Spring coming to an end, many students are left wondering “What should I do this summer?” Three students, Emmily Calaca, Azury Gomez-Ulloa, and Ursinette Ramos have got an answer. 

Some students like to keep busy throughout the summer. They use it as an opportunity.

Gomez-Ulloa says she usually spends her summer “doing internships or taking college classes,” she says “every single summer since 9th grade, I have been doing some kind of program.” This summer, Gomez-Ulloa is taking on an internship at a lab for a program called SEED. When it comes to finding these summer opportunities, “talk to [Miss] Kia or anyone from Heights.” Gomez-Ullua says, “they have a lot of connections and they will help you apply.” 

“Do any kind of internship, program, or dual enrollment program. They are relatively easy and if you pick something that you will be interested [in], it will make it way better.” Gomez-Ullua said, “But my only advice is to take programs that pay you at the end. Doing activities is fun but there is A LOT of programs that will pay highschool students for completing them.”

Other students are more interested in quality time with family and friends. 

“I spend my summers outside,” said Ramos, “If I’m not in a pool, I’m hanging out with my friends or playing softball with my dad and my brother.” 

Ramos plans to spend her time with the people in her life. Spending your summer with loved ones is a great way to build relationships and make memories!

“Students should go outside and have fun,” said Ramos, “The summer will be boring if you just lay in bed all day.”

Students like Calaca like to enjoy their summer by traveling.

“I plan to go to Virginia and possibly Florida,” said Calaca. She says she wants to spend her summer break “traveling with family or going to amusement parks.” A little fun helps the summer go by!

“I recommend just to go outside and not stay home and experience new things.” Calaca said, “And if you can’t afford to travel, just take a walk or go to the park.”

The summer is approaching fast! Knowing how to spend it is the best way to prepare. 

“Go touch grass!” Calaca urges.
