9 Pieces of RTHS

By Aaron Zhao

Students come from all over to attend Research Triangle High School (RTHS). Despite coming from different counties and growing up from different backgrounds, the students and faculty at RTHS form a collective whole. Over the course of this semester, I was given the opportunity to hear and photograph the stories of nine of the hundreds of unique individuals who call RTHS their second home.

I would like to thank Naman, Malcolm, Josh, Mae, Elsa, Jenn, Ahana, Adah, and Rosie for offering me a glimpse into their lives. This project -- unintentionally -- was a way for me to reflect on my own upbringing. It made me remember how fortunate I am to be surrounded by such incredible and unique individuals throughout my every day.

I wish everyone at RTHS the best of luck in their futures.
