I’m a high school senior from Atlanta. I love research and writing, and get to pursue both as the section editor for my school’s newspaper. I started the Grady Activism Club at my school to enable like-minded students with a passion for making a difference to design and implement projects that effect such change. I also love to travel and learn new languages. I am interested in understanding how to reduce cross-cultural conflicts and believe that an important way to achieve this goal is to educate children at an early stage about the value and beauty of cross-cultural differences.

My HERlead Project: Kids Meeting Point

Kids Meeting Point is an online magazine and discussion forum to encourage and foster cross-cultural understanding among middle school children. The magazine, accessible online at KidsMeetingPoint.com, will educate youth about different cultures through key facts, educational games, recipes and music.
