Volume 1, Number 1 Spring 2012Stories Of The Heart And MindCatalina Magnet High School2 Stories Of The Heart And Mind Spring 2012If you really want to accomplish something, you must act as if is impossible to fail. Ashanti proverbIt is very exciting to produce our first online maga-zine! Students have so much to say and their experi-ences are unique and fun. This school year I have had the pleasure of listening to so many amazing stories filled with courage, hardship, humor, dismay, and ev-ery imaginable human emotion. My students have so much in common, even if they are from so many different parts of the world. Because I also grew up in another country, I can relate to their feelings and stories. The culture shock stories are particular-ly fun to tell, as we grow and change so much when encountering a new culture, or living in a new coun-try with different values, ideals, and philosophies. Because we recently focused on the authors pur-pose in an article, students have chosen to enter-tain, persuade or inform you, the reader. This first online magazine is a collection and culmination of brainstormed topics, favorite experiences and those ideas that hold our curiosity for the moment. We welcome comments and suggestions as we be-gin to think about our future online magazine pieces. A special thank you: I want to thank Santiago Samo-rano for collecting all of our stories and spending many hours organizing them into the actual online magazine! The power of storiesBy Ms. SamoranoHave you ever listened,really listened, to someone tella story about an experience they had? Watch the way their eyes glimmerand how their face changes?The lips pucker or broaden with a laugh,revealing little canals of lined rivers and,old or young, the rivers flow on the facein remembrance, in a tribute to a delicious timepast, when in a moment something was captured and, long before cameras and cell phones were conceived in a young persons mind, the eye flashed and held tightly to the horror, to the mesmerizing and sensual time when a raucous laughter or shrill shouting,changed the world of one person, opening a doorto another dimension, a new path, a new destiny bringing them to you now,to taste, smell, relish and devourthat time I will never forget and lasso you into this precise moment that has shown up once more like a distinguished visitor you imme-diately take in, to be fascinated, enlightened, amused, enraged, hungry, shocked, terrified, and changed, forever. Why is the teacher contributing her writing? A coach should always be able to do what she asks her students to attempt. Thats why I am contributing my own writing. I want my students to know that everyone has to rewrite and rewrite in order to produce a decent final draft. But its worth it and it can be fun. Writing takes patience and I have always loved it. I began writ-ing as a child to express my ideals, my love for my fam-ily, and my hopes for my own life. My parents loved my poetry and letters. I had the power to bring them a smile and sometimes they cried with emotion. I hope to encourage my students to grow artistically, spiritually, and intellectually the way my parents encouraged me.

Soccer was invented in England. Soccer at-tracts peoples attention because its fun and exciting. Soccer made people make a corporation called FIFA and that team work divided soccer into seven differ-ent parts, where the best players play and where people barely knows how to play soccer. In 1926 the FIFA decided to organize a world cup where each country has to play for each continent so they can get to the best 32 teams of the world. In 1930 they celebrated the first world cup and that world cup took place in Uruguay and Uruguay won.

This is where all the European countries play to win the cup and to win some respect from all the countries, and it starts in July with all the emotions. by Limbert4 Stories Of The Heart And Mind Spring 2012By EstebanIts important to care of your self, and also love yourself for who you are, and believe in yourself. We should not care about what people are saying, if you think you are cute yes you are, but if you hear people saying that you are ugly, and you believe them, you will never care about your appear-ance. If a person wants to care about how they look they have to know who they really are. To believe in yourself is not a hard thing to do. Like some girls like to wear things that they like and their friends say that is too ugly, look what shes wear-ing ew, but its not, its just because the person knows what they like to wear. Why do some girls like to look all cute and some of them dont care about their ap-pearance? If a person doesnt care about herself nobody will care for them. So when a girl wants to look good it takes time, she has to do anything to make herself cute or beautiful and look very nice . She has to do lots of things to take care of herself. If you want to look cute and all that you have to make it happen, you will not just sit there and wait for it to come to you, no you have to do it. Also if you are about to go to somewhere, Step one, take a shower. Step two, put lotion on. When you are done, look for something sexy to wear and make sure you have everything you need. Than put make up on and mach everything you have to mach what you are wearing. After that put perfume so you can smell good. Then go to the place that you were going to. Ev-erybody will like how you look and start caring about their appearance. If somebody tells you look ugly, just say thank you and just dont listen to them. Maybe they are jealous, who knows? People its very important to care about who you are to show people who dont know you who you really are and to love yourself for whoever you are. Dont care about what others think about you, just care about yourself and who you are. Be happy with your-self. How To Care About Your AppearanceTwice As NiceTwice as nice is a clothing store that sells all kinds of clothes and shoes. The nearest store to our school is the one on Alvernoon and Campbell. The address is 3989, Grant Rd. Its by the subway restaurant, and its in front of Wal-Mart. Twice as nice is a cheap store, and has a good things that you need. You have to go there, because its better than spending a lot of money at the other stores. Things are not very expensive. A clean shirt costs 9.99$, its not expensive if compared with the other stores. The store is open from 9:00am to 6:00pm so you have all day to shop. Its open the whole week except Saturday and Sunday. How can you get to Twice as nice? If you are on Pima St, you have to turn left from Pima St. to Dodge blvd, then you go straight to Grant, than turn right then you go across Grant, be-fore you go far from Alvernon-Grant turn left on Grant, its on the right side with a big sign says (TWICE AS NICE).by Ibrahimby DevotaHi, I am a student at Catalina Magnet High School. When I came to the U.S.A, the culture shock that I ex-perienced was that when I saw boys and girls kissing and hugging each other in front of everyone in pub-lic. And I also saw girls pregnant before marriage. This was a culture shock for me because in my country its a shame to kiss in front of people, and you cant be preg-nant before marriage. If you are pregnant before mar-riage then no one will marry you. If you kiss in front of people everyone will look at you and they might talk about you and they will say bad stuff about you.Culture Shockby SharifaSpring 2012 Stories Of The Heart And Mind 5Im a refugee boy who spent 18 years in a refugee camp. In refugee camps there are a lot of problems all refugee people face. For me it was very difficult to live in a refugee camp. When I was 6 years old my father died. My mom could not do any thing because my mom is disabled. When my father died we had many big prob-lems. Then my mom worked in the river for me and my sister. In Nepal there is lot of sun, same like in Tucson. My mom worked hard in the river. She would collect stones and sold them to a truck driver. Because at that time I was little and I had two more sisters, we needed money to buy books, pens, and pencils for school. My mom went to work in the morning and I took care of my two sisters. I combed their hair than I cooked food for my mom and my sis-ter. When I was back from school I changed my school clothes and my sisters school dress. Then I went to get water atthe tap to bring water for cooking food and for my sister my mom and me to bathe and wash clothes. My refugee life was a very hard life, just like for other refugee people. I spent 15 years in a poor refugee life in a refugee camp. I think refugee camps are the like a bird cage. If someone put a bird in a cage, they cant wait outside with him they need to help take him outside. In my life the same things happened like a bird who was kept in a cage.But in my life no one could help take me outside of a refugee camp. But after 18 years I found one agency we called (I.O.M) it means inter-national origination for immigration. They helped to take me out from the refugee camp. When I found that agency I felt very happy because that agency changed my familys future life. Then when I went for the first time to the I.O.M office,they decided to take my fam-ily to America in Tucson, Arizona. Then I started to think about my new life that I spent in America. My mom she was so happy, because if we could go to America we wouldnt have to do hard work in the river all the time. My sisters were also happy to go to America. I think we were very luckily people in this refugee camp because I got my first chance to come to America with my small happy family. Then I had other problems like money to buy clothes and some new things that we could use in America. I did not have enough money to buy clothes and other things. When I was a 10 years old I opened a Photoshop with the help of my friends. I sold that shop with my friends and I got some money to buy good things that I used in America. Things like clothes, bags, cooking stuff. After that we left our beautiful ref-ugee camp on April, 10, 2010 in the morning at 8:00am. From my camp we went to the capital city of Nepal, that is Kathmandu, at 12:00 oclock in the af-ternoon. Then we stayed 4 days in Kathmandu because we had to get a plane ticket from Kathmandu to New York in America. Then on April 14, 2010 our journey began from the capital city of Nepal. And on April 15, 2010 at night time I came to Tucson Interna-tional Airport. When I get out from the plane I saw a lot of Nepali people. They came to pick up my family. One thing I didnt know was that Nepali people would come to welcome me in a new coun-try. At that time I felt very happy. I thought in Amer-ica there are also Nepali people, I am not alone with my family. Then from the airport I came to my new house where I started my new life in a new country. After two months when I come here, I joined my school at Catalina magnet high school. When I came to Catalina High School I felt happy because I found different friends from different countries and I learned some different languages in school to help my friends. After some months all the teachers knew me. Refugee Life By Muskan6 Stories Of The Heart And Mind Spring 2012When I first came to America it was really hard for me to know the culture and to study the people. When I was in Nepal I thought in America theyre just white and black when I first saw all kinds of people I was very happy. And also I saw Nepali people and I talked to them. And one day I a saw bunch of people talking to each-other, and I came close to them but, they werent talking in Nepali, and English either, but they looked Nepali. And I asked them are you guys Nepali? They Said NO. I asked them again really? They were like NO and I asked them where are you guys from? They said Mexico I was like OMG and I said sorry people they were like okayfine and they asked me are you new in USA? I said yeah!! I was new in the school. I didnt even recognize my own teacher. Because they all looked the same and sometimes my Nepali friends helped me find the classes but, more than 10 times I got lost. After one week I was okaythen I could go to all my classes and I knew the teachers. I didnt know most of the peers, I made many friends but, it took a while to figure out their name. And now I am at Catalina Magnet High School. Now I do know my teachers and it doesnt take time to figure out friends names. Now Im glad to be in the USA.

I feel so excited that I am going to have a new friend. Oh yep today is the first day of school and I went to my first period class. After that I saw a girl walking alone in the hallway and she looked like she was confused. I ran away near her and I said hi I am Krishna, and she said hello I am Sheema; hey can you help me find this class, and I say sure let me see your schedule and she gave me her schedule. I told her hey we have the same class and she says thats great and I say can we be friends? And Sheema says of course. After that we used to walk together and we used to go shopping together.

She was sitting on the chair and watching us. After a while one boy came near her and he sat down on the chair, and they introduced each other. When I came back from the beach she told me she liked him and he also liked her. The field trip was wonderful because we had a lot of fun and some people were dancing, and-some of them were eating. After 1 hour we come back home. The next morning we had to be ready to go to school. When we talked at school she told me about the boy she met. Sheema said he went to our same school. I said oh! My god I never saw him. We went to the 1st period class. When 1st period finished, we talked as we walked to another class again Then we saw that boy standing in the hallway watching her. He called her and he gave her a red rose and he said I love you, do you love me? Sheema was quiet for second. She said yep I also love you. They fell in love. The name of the boy is Karan; after that Karan and Sheema used to dated each other but, the problem is another girl liked karan and when she saw Sheema and Karan together she become jealous and she tried to fight with Sheema. After a few months, Sheemas par-ents knew that Sheema and Karan were in love. They tried to separate them because they didnt like Karans family.Spring 2012 Stories Of The Heart And Mind 7When things are going well with your life and ev-erything around you, it is easy to have peace of mind.

My advice is to try to learn from other peoples mistakes and the good things too. Never let people tell you what to do, but if they are right do it and use your mind if this thinks are good or bad. The important things are to try to have old friends so you will learn from them the good things and get advice as much as you can. Always try to ask questions to older people because they have some bet-ter ideas and skills. Wisdom is good to have so you can be success-ful in this life. In your job or business, people wont cheat you because you will already have learned your lesson from others. When you are wise in this life peo-ple will trust you more and believe in you. If you make a mistake dont ever get mad at the person who tries to correct you, or give you a lesson. You should be proud of yourself because people care about you. Learn from your lesson. Even if you are wise, you can still make mistakes in this life. Try to improve your self and if you have a problem fix it with your mind, not with your body.

The main things to keep your brain in a good shape are mental activity. Your brain is a very powerful device. It is much more perfect than any computer or anything else. For example, you wake up in the morning, go to the bathroom, take your breakfast etc. you perform all those activities without thinking re-ally. If you make similar work again and again, there is NO need to use your brain. Almost all people play chess to make their mind sharp. It helps build your mind. Chess is a game played by two people on a chessboard with six-teen pieces, eight are the same and the rest are different. Each type of piece moves in a dis-tinct way. The goal of the game is to checkmate. The player controlling the white army is named "White"; the player controlling the black pieces is named "Black. When two players are playing chess, if a player's king is placed in check and there is no legal move that play-er can make to escape check, then the king is said to be checkmated, the game ends, and that player loses. When we play chess, we have to know that, when a friend moves their players, we have to move on cor-rectly. It a good way to build our mind.
