Although for this month’s mission we are supposed to decide what change needs to be done in our schools, I have already started the process of change in my school.
Although I have already done something like this/ doing this currently, I will share my story anyway:
When I was in eleventh grade, I decided that sexual harassment was happening way too often in my school.I thought that more needed to be done. So I emailed my assistant principal and told him my thoughts. I started meeting with him weekly, to further brainstorm on what I could do. That was almost two years ago. I have completed so much since. I go to the local middle school in my city, and give presentations on sexual harassment every semester. Along with that I have made pamphlets, and I’m working on my own curriculum for when I present to the students. I have also created my own website, and I am currently working on making this into an official program, where I can go to multiple schools across NY state to speak to middle school and high school students. It’s been a long journey, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I have been so fortunate to have so many incredible people support me,and help me along the way. I will continue to do this for as long as I can. Feel free to check out my website here:
