“My daughter. I’m inspired by her for many reasons. She has a strong sense of self and part of her growing identity is to advocate for others and fight for social justice; things I aspire to do but am sometimes hesitant to do but she’s confident and persistent in doing so. She wants to give people a voice and she finds ways to give people a voice.” -Señora Marcelle Gregoire
Harriet Tubman. She sacrificed a lot to help Black slaves in the Underground Railroad and I think that’s an incredibly brave action. Also, Mrs. Castillo, the Medical Careers teacher!

“My mom! She’s just really understanding and, overall, she’s just so cool.” – Lily Neves (Freshman)
