On Oct. 12, Liberty High School leadership students hosted their second annual Challenge Day, which is an opportunity to break down barriers with others. Almost 200 students participated in the fun activities established by this event.

The biggest activity the students were affected by was the Cross the Line activity. Kids were asked a question and if they answered ‘yes,’ they would cross the line. Everyone became very emotional during this time.

“It was a very cool experience. It gave me a different perspective on life,” said senior Estefania Crespo.

Towards the end of Challenge Day, students went back to their groups to express their feelings.
