By Brittany Villacorta of South Houston High School

On Thursday, March 6th, ten SoHo students participated in the Academic World Quest competition at Pelazzio Houston. World Quest is a series of games with four rounds of twenty questions each. Questions vary from being about international events to global politics. The students who participated were:

  • Adan Diaz and Karen Perez, who represented Mexico.
  • Angel Rubio and Arlen Suarez, who represented India.
  • Israel Phillips and Julia Hernandez, who represented Africa. 
  • Daisy Vaquera, who represented Pakistan.
  • Diego Medina, who represented Vietnam.
  • Melanie Orellana, who represented Saudi Arabia.
  • Valentine Galarza, who represented Scotland.

Moreover, the coaches were: 

  • Mr. Stewart, who represented North America.
  • Ms. Nguyen, who represented Vietnam, as well.

Our fellow Trojans placed second in both a quizzing round and costumes. Ms. Andrea Nguyen had nothing but kind words to say about the students. She stated, "I'm extremely proud of the students. I feel as if they showed a substantial amount of class and very strong enthusiasm. All the hard work and hours they put forth is the reason they did very well."
