My Students

Students at our school shine as bright as the sun itself. They span a diversity of cultures, languages, and life experiences. However, when you look within their eyes, you can see the same light. Their eyes hold a light that can be buried by the burdens of life but ignited by the possibility of new opportunities.

These opportunities are made readily available in our Counseling Center, The Sol Center.

In this safe space, positive new light is provided on challenges faced by students and staff.

My Project

Students at our school can walk into our counseling center, The Sol Center, at any moment of the day. Most times, they will come highly agitated, worried, overwhelmed, and bring with them many other emotions that a child should not have to hold on to. The opportunity to impact students the moment they walk into our counseling center would be astounding. The power of uplifting music will make an impact that could reach far within the deepest parts of their psyche. This surround sound system will make it possible for students to walk in and instantaneously feel a shift in their perspective and be inspired to find their way back to a more peaceful state of mind.
