|Prompted by classmates’ discriminatory acts, Kaylee searched for ways to hold fellow students accountable, start conversations about racism, and ultimately see dramatic change in her school.
During the summer workshop Kaylee found community with other young people from New York City, and wrote a powerful story about speaking up and overcoming damaging stereotypes about Black women.
Kaylee believes “100%” in the power of stories to change lives.
Currently, Kaylee is working on a new story about the dangers of “tea pages” — social media pages specific to a school where students can spread gossip about each other. We look forward to publishing her new stories.
