Halim Tienda is a dedicated and passionate senior at BHS that is only a few months away from graduation. The end of the year brings opportunity and excitement for the seniors as they get their college acceptance letters and realize they’ll have to go out into the world by themselves.

Tienda recently got accepted into Purdue after wanting to go there since he was young.

“Purdue is the best public school in Indiana. No cap. I’ve been wanting to go to Purdue since I was in 5th grade.  Getting accepted into Purdue is probably in my top 10 happiest moments in my life,” he said.

Tienda also showed a passionate side of his personality in his interview.

“Roses have been something I’ve been passionate about since I was a little boy. My father and I don’t have a great relationship. We don’t see eye to eye on a lot of things, but when I was a boy, he had a garden that had a lot of different color roses. I would help him grow the roses, and to this day I’ve been in love with roses. A lot of the drip I wear has rose designs on them.  Before I die, I want to have 24 roses on my back. Twelve of them will be place in a vase and be in good condition, symbolizing the good memories I have, and twelve roses will be torn and scattered on my back, symbolizing the pain that people experience while alive.”
