”It was my first half marathon,and I got a 1:48 and I thought I was going to be running for 2 hours and I ended up beating

my dad.”

“My goals for this year are to stay focused in school and cross country. I plan on running a sub 22 minute 5k and try not to get injured while trying to achieve that. For school I want to get straight A’s for sure, and I wanna become more organized inside of school.”

“Someone who had a significant impact on my life is probably just my cross country team. They’re very supportive and always push me to be my best. It’s really hard sometimes to see when they’re way ahead of you but you just have to push forward past the pain. They’ve done that for me and have pushed me to keep up with them and it’s helped me improve so much.”

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.
