Students in Amelie Czekaj’s Spanish classes at Massapequa High School-Ames Campus put their language and creative skills to the test when they produced a video and entered it into the Spanish radio station X96.3FM’s contest ¡Queremos conocer a Enrique Iglesias!
The video consisted of students in different venues saying in Spanish, “I want to meet Enrique Iglesias!” Winners of the contest received tickets to a private Enrique Iglesias concert in New York. While the students were not eligible to win the tickets because of age restrictions, the radio station was so impressed with their video, DJ Luis Jiménez came to the school to present a guitar autographed by the famous singer. Jiménez spoke with students about how he became a professional disc jockey, funny moments in his career and the famous people he has met. He also encouraged them to follow their dreams, as he did, and conquer them.
