Review for Get Lit Words Ignite, Los Angeles, CA, USA
From a student of the program to now teacher of the program, Get Lit undoubtedly has a positive impact on youth. I've had the privilege of working with this organization for over 10 years and within that timespan I've witnessed countless times the change it has made in classrooms across the country. The Get Lit Curriculum provides students with the tools to reengage with their education and regain control of their lives. I serve as an example of this miracle. I began high school hopeless and disinterested, earning less than a 2.0 GPA my sophomore year. I honestly didn't think I would get my high school diploma. That all changed once I joined Get Lit. The Get Lit Curriculum empowered me to share my voice and focus on my future. Because of Get Lit I've been able to perform at the White House, have my own play produced, and most importantly receive my high school diploma. I am forever grateful for what this organization has given me and it is a honor of mine to help give those same opportunities to today's youth.
