     Letter from the Editors:

    Here we are back again with the last Torch of the year. Although it has been a challenging year, many of us have had to adjust to the new lifestyle that we were obligated to fulfill. Many of us faced lots of obstacles this year with mental health and school. Nonetheless, we have overcome many of these issues that have come our way. Now as the spring semester has come to an end, we would like to thank you all for your endless support. Our articles were meant to connect with you all, and we feel that we have done just that. Reading many of your personal experiences truly made us feel as if we were connected, from a distance. We intended to connect with you all on various levels so that you were aware that you are not alone. Times like these are very difficult but we must stay united to overcome these tragic events. Well, that is  all from us here at the Torch. We wish you luck in the next chapter in  your life and hope you all succeed as we know you are capable.

Thank you,

Adriana Rodriguez Cordero & Madalyn Corral
