Ryan Hernandez


My name is Ryan Hernandez, and I am from South San Francisco. I graduated as the salutatorian from Our Lady of Mercy School in Daly City and now I am a sophomore at SHC. In my free time, I play video games with my friends and listen to a wide range of music nonstop, always searching for something new. I also highly enjoy photography and often travel to different places with my family where I can put my knowledge about photography into use.

Here at SHC, I am the co-president of Comic Club, which is a club that appreciates all types of cartoons and pop culture overall. We bond together as a group and share our interests in modern media. In addition to that, I signed up for Tech Crew to work in the Stage Crew department. I also signed up for Photography Club to strengthen my experience with taking photos and editing them afterward.

Everyone has their own opinions and ideas, which leads to publishing articles about the same thing but being told in multiple ways. We thought about having a platform where people can share their thoughts about the various news being broadcasted to the world. This would help people learn from each other and open up to individual feelings and thoughts.

Around the SHC World

As of now, Sacred Heart Cathedral is a melting pot of backgrounds. The school is filled with a multitude of ethnic groups, so many that from time to time some people are not heard as much as others. And for that, equality has declined. Using social media and the art of photography, I want to encourage our school to be more knowledgeable about other people's beliefs and lifestyles, for we all have equally different aspects. Around the SHC World is a project that focuses on making everyone feel accepted and included in the school community, giving voices a chance to be heard.
