Estrella’s Story: A Passionate Student on the Path to Success
Estrella joined Leaders in Training (LIT) this fall as a 9th grader. With a mixed documentation status family of 7, Estrella is committed to reaching her hopes and dreams even if systemic and structural barriers stand in her way.
Estrella lives in a zipcode where students have a greater chance of dropping out of high school than earning a college degree and the lack of Las Vegas tourism led her mom to lose her job in a COVID-19 economy.
Yet, Estrella comes to LIT weekly after school, volunteers in her community from making masks to helping at local food drives, and stays committed to being on the path to success for herself, her family and her community. Estrella remains optimistic & resilient as a 14-year-old in order to be the change from the community, for the community today & in the future as a diverse social justice leader.
Estrella and our young people make a choice at LIT every day to dream more and be more no matter the difficulties of wifi access at home, employment access for their families or healthcare access for their communities. The barriers students and families face are through no faults of their own and are the consequences of structural inequities and systemic racism. By giving to LIT this holiday season, you stand in solidarity with our students and their families demanding educational justice and access for all students no matter their zipcode or color of their skin. Thank YOU for being part of our team.
