Hispanic students gather for state conference

From the story:

Jonathan Sosa, 16, a junior at Dunwoody High School near Atlanta was one of four high school students who spoke to middle-schoolers..

A clear favorite of the younger students, particularly the preteen girls, Sosa, who moved from Uruguay when he was 12, answered questions about his favorite classes in school, his plans for the future and how being Hispanic has influenced his perception of the world.

"I was nervous," said Sosa, who said he hopes to go to college and become an architect. "It was very good. It's like, you're doing the right thing and you want to show others how to do it and to keep going."
