I sat down with several young people from the Gila River Indian Community in Chandler, Arizona, home to the Akimel O’otham and Pee Posh tribes. To me, these students are living proof of the power of resilience. No matter what they’re facing, no matter how difficult their circumstances, they get up every day believing that they can make life better for themselves, their families, and their peers. I believe in them, too—and I hope you do as well.
This isn’t the last time we’ll hear from Samaira, Andrew, Adam, Charisma, Daniel, Davidson, and Erica. #ReachHigher
