Humans of MHS #7

3/2018

By Maple Perchlik

This month, as I thought about my upcoming article for Humans of MHS, I thought, "Why don’t we make this month’s release a little different?"  I feel like sometimes the humans of MHS that I see everyday I know nothing about. Just normal things, like who they are as people in general. So I interviewed two people from the halls of MHS about their life just as people, not as actors or musicians. Human to human.
