I’ve worked with kids previously but recently started working with young adolescents this past summer with the Summer and Youth Academic and Employment Program established by Youth Community Developers. As a first-generation college student myself, my vision is to influence and mentor young students by giving them a platform to succeed with the hopes pursuing higher education. I am also starting a Girl’s Group that essentially is a safe space for girls to come and discuss the importance of self-care, body positivity, building healthy relationships, and other life skills that they can implement during this stage of their life and onward.
