Humans of Sophomore Honors English: Kaitlin Giacone

In an interview I had with Kaitlin Giacone, you get to know about her inspiring story of how she wants to help change an issue she is passionate about. She explains a past issue of hers, and how she is planning on preventing others going through it.

By Sequoia A. from Eureka High School in California

“I think when I was little it just clicked [that I had a passion for sports], the competitive energy that revolved around sports. It's my creative outlet to be myself and do what I want.” “As an athlete, the worst thing ever is getting hurt, 2 summers ago I had a lower back problem because my hamstrings were over strained, so I couldn't pitch or hit for my summer team. I went to the chiropractor for 2 months, and they were getting more and more money from my family without helping me. Then I went to a physical therapist one time. They gave me stretches, and then I was all good."

"I want to open up my own physical therapy or physical training company, to help athletes who were injured and were not getting the help they needed, just like me.”

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.
