CRAHS-7 Graduation
Michelle has been strengthened by tremendous personal challenges. She comes from a community afflicted by expansive poverty and scarce resources. Given her limited resources, Michelle has risen above her peers and her circumstances to be an exemplary scholar and role model to the students around her. Michelle is the only student in her class accepted at UC Berkley and one of two accepted at UCLA. She sets the bar high when it comes to her academics and her demeanor in the classroom. In spite of limited resources Michelle has constantly found ways to improve her school culture and community through her hard work and commitment to education. Michelle has contributed to the school community in several ways most notably through her participation on the Academic Decathlon Team and the school Choir. Her intellectual curiosity drives her to not only excell in her demanding coursework but she is also a part of her high school Academic Mentor Program. Through this program she works with specific students teaching them organizational skills while providing general homework assistance.
