Humans of Sophomore Honors: Whilder Kijsriopas

I interviewed Whilder Kijsriopas about how she has become the person she is today. She explains challenges she´s faced and learned from, what has motivated her throughout her life, and explains a reflection on moments she is most proud of.

¨I´ve always had to travel back and forth a lot, because my parents live in two different places. I would always have to take independent study. It taught me what's appropriate for what situation and how to censor yourself with different people and different things…

My motivation mostly comes from the person I want to be...I want to be a well rounded person...I am proud of the person I have become today because if you even talked to me three years ago I was a train wreck. I was nothing like the person I am now...Honestly, in my past 15 years I don't think there is anything I would want to change. I really like where I am right now just because of all the different things I have done and all the mistakes I have learned from. I still ended up at this really great high point in my life and I wouldn't be here without those, so I am really happy with what shapes me to the person I am today.¨

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.
