The Bridge Newspaper During the summer of 2010, A&M International University held The Super Hero camp for children to learn about the importance of journalism and photography. Olivia Galinzoga, a 13 year old, light -haired camper told The Bridge about why she was interested in joining the camp. She told Bridge journalists
that “her grandmother has always been very involved in writing, and that this inspired her to join the summer program”. Olivia also said that she loves taking pictures and writing about her day to day experiences. Olivia believes that her experiences at this summer camp will help her enrich her knowledge when she is at school and will be a major learning experience for her life years to come.

The Bridge Contributor During the month of July, Texas A & M International University student newspaper, The Bridge, hosted the “Super Hero” summer camp. The one week camp consisted of writing news stories and taking photographs. I was one of the attendees at the camp. I like to be called M and I am 10 years old. My mom convinced me to attend the summer camp which I have come to enjoy. “I love the
camp and everyone in it, I especially love taking pictures.” I believe that learning to take pictures will help her live by having the possibility to see her pictures print on the newspaper next week. My mom got me a pink camera to begin her creative journey. I have just transitioned from third grade into fourth grade at Malakoff Elementary school. I think my photo skills will assist me in documenting my childhood, creating unforgettable memories.

She says she likes how Harmony is more involved in the community, by hosting multiple art and culture fairs. Aside from being a student at the Science Academy, Nisha was also a basketball player in their mighty tiger team Nisha continues to keep in touch with her friends at Mary Help.
