Leah has been a lot more reflective about who she is, how she treats others and how others are treated. Just recently, she initiated and helped to facilitate a racial tolerance workshop for her middle school peers. She presented on topics, such as attending to culturally competent language, and behaviors among diverse student populations. She is working with the school's administration to implement ongoing talks throughout the school year. Leah has taken the feedback from her progress report and is trying to challenge herself to read more substantive literature. She has embraced the notion that she has the aptitude to be an emerging scholar if she puts forth time and effort. I am happy to see that she is enjoying the work of some of the black intellectuals she was introduced to in the program: [Zora Neale] Hurston, [Ntozake] Shange, etc.
