2019 R2L NextGen
Jayuya, Puerto Rico
School: Josefina Leon Zayas

“I think that deep down, we all know we have the power to make change, but in a world that fills you with doubt and shuts you down, it can be hard to find your voice. The R2L NextGen program showed me that we are all important and that we have the right to be heard. I learned that with passion and preparation we can do anything we put our minds to. Today, I leave with new goals and a new familia by my side. Now I know that we are never alone and that together we can take the world by storm.”
