Humans of Sophomore Honors: Tomas Paoli

I interviewed Tomas Paoli and I learned that he is from Indonesia, is very self driven, and doesn't let anything stop him from achieving his goals.

By Clark G. from Eureka High School in California

Tomas Paoli 

“I think i’m a hard worker, I try my best in everything even when I don't succeed.”

“I grew up in Indonesia for my first 5 years and I only remember fragments of it but I remember I was really happy there”

“There were times in my life where it was very hard to speak my truth, speak my mind and my parents helped me speak my mind.”

“I failed a test one time and I felt dumb and was really down about it but I retook it and got a better grade. It made me feel better about myself.”

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
