Student Minds

Students talked about which parent they most identify with and which one they don’t identify with as much in this week’s issue of student minds.

Junior Kasidee Young said the parent she most identifies with is her mom.

"I’ve always been closer to her growing up and now I feel like I’m more like her," Young said.

Young said her mom has taught her much.

"As I get older, I learn how right she is," Young said.

Young said she does not identify with her dad as much as she does with her mom.

"He thinks differently than I do, but he’s still not necessarily wrong," Young said.

Sophomore Sonja Gonzales said she also identifies with her mom.

"I would say my mom, because she’s the one who raised me and shaped me into who I am today," Gonzales said.

Gonzales said that although she does look more like her dad, she has a lot of her mom’s personality.

Junior Thomas Croghan said he identifies with his mother.

"She raised me to be kind and to be a gentleman for the most of her life by herself," Croghan said.

Croghan said he does not identify with his father well.

"He left when I was young so I just don’t know him that well," Croghan said.

However, Croghan said he did have a good father figure growing up "thanks to my step-dad."

Senior Mckena Peregrino was the opposite and said she identifies most with her dad.

"He is an extrovert like myself, so we think very much alike, which allows us to better understand each other," Peregrino said.

Peregrino said her mom is still her best friend.

"However, she is an introvert so we often don’t see eye to eye on things," Peregrino said.

Junior Cody Ortiz was different from the rest of the students and said he identifies with both parents.

"I can’t really pick one parent," Ortiz said. "I would have to say I identify with both of my parents."

Ortiz said his parents have taught him many things.

"They both have taught me to work hard in whatever you’re pursuing, whether it was school, work, extracurricular activities or working a job," Ortiz said.
