My Students

From the moment I met them, even through the barriers of the zooming computer, they were ready and excited to share their art, their projects and their thoughts on the world. One student claimed she was going to be an amazing prosecutor and defy what it is to be a female in society. Another said she wants to be an architect so she can participate in constructing the community around her. My students are powerful, insightful and so kind.

They are driven by their dreams and love for expression.

I will strive every day to be able to support them both academically but also as people.

My Project

My students have very specific passions, dreams and interests. In a remote world, it is harder to go to the library or borrow books from class. I want to be able to purchase books and art supplies that directly cater to their dreams. I have two veterinarians, a prosecutor, three fashion designers, animators, three teachers and an architect!!

I want them to have the resources to start building the foundation to reach their goals and expand their curiosities!

With this proposal funded, we will have material and books that will begin their research and help them learn about their passions.
