Literacy and Arts in Action: Bookmarks & Drawings

One day, Caimen decided he wanted to draw.  He was apprehensive, but with encouragement from his family he developed a commitment to practice drawing everyday and over time his drawing and confidence in himself has improved .  He was also apprehensive about reading.  Over time he conquered his fear of learning something new and is now an advanced 5th grade reader.  Caimen believes knowledge sharing is key to building group innovation and helping young people dream big while respecting each other.
