More than hopes and dreams: JA Academy


Daniel’s growth while in the JA Academy has been monumental. To go from a student who didn’t go out of his way to avoid trouble, to a student who is respected by his peers and sitting at the top of his class is no small feat.

As the oldest child, his determination to change the narrative for his family pushed him to get his head in the game and commit to becoming successful. The comradery and culture of JA Academy has helped to open his eyes to the opportunities that exist beyond the classroom walls, and has given him the skills and support to actual act on those opportunities.

Daniel’s sense of pride in the person he is becoming, and the responsibility he has to lead the way for his family and peers is an inspiration to us all.
