GW celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

GW+celebrates+Hispanic+Heritage+Month

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 “CafĂ© con Leche,” a Latino-focused spoken word open mic, created a space for students to appreciate Hispanic culture at GW.
