This piece placed second for middle school submissions in the 2018 Ánimo Voices Competition, which invited students to write about innovators, upstanders, visionaries, or rebels that have made a difference in their local or broader communities. The competition was an opportunity to motivate, recognize, and celebrate strong student voices throughout the organization through writing and art.
