Meet Ava Ward! The final member of our 2020 Student Leader Advisory Council and a @teachforamerica student.⁣ ⁣ "I’m 16 years old, I live in Denver, Colorado and I'm in the 11th grade at Northfield High School. Currently in school I am working towards achieving my International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and I am a varsity debate captain. I have participated in debate for two years and became a co-captain after my first year as a novice. I have a passion for Policy-style debate focusing on domestic policy and World Schools debate focusing on international policy. I am also a member of HOSA, a club for medical professionals and I play Varsity Tennis for my school. Outside of school, I spend every Monday volunteering at St. Luke’s Presbyterian Hospital in downtown Denver. This opportunity allows me to run a room with donated food, supplies, and entertainment for families who stay for long periods of time on the pediatric floor. I have to clean, organize and run the room along with comforting families who have children in the hospital. When I’m not volunteering, I work at a locally-based ice cream shop where I scoop ice cream.⁣ ⁣ I am so appreciative of the opportunity to be a part of the Student Leader Advisory Council because I aim to encourage, motivate and energize those who want to make a change in the world. Change belongs to the future, and it is the responsibility of the younger generations to encourage this positive change. With my fellow student leaders, I aim to utilize and celebrate our differences in order to create an ideal academic system that addresses the difficulties and challenges that students face. Teach For All is a roadmap of students from all over the world to help those who want to create a better classroom for students and provide better resources for educators."

We're so excited to introduce Lykke Storgaard, a @teachfirstdk student and member of our 2020 Student Leader Advisory Council.⁣ ⁣ "My name is Lykke. I am 14 years old, and I live in Snertinge, Denmark. I am in the 8th grade at Firhøjskolen. I am vice chairwoman of my school’s student council. I aspire to be an inspiration to other students around the world. I am a part of a culture crew at my school, we help whenever there are concerts, theatres and lectures at our school. But we also participate in bigger events. I am well known around the students at my school. I play an active part in the stuff that is going on at our school and strive to make schools a good and healthy environment for all students. And I therefore hope that the students of SLAC can help better the education system, and get the input of students out there in the world."

Meet Inesa Zohrabyan, a @teachforarmenia student and member of our 2020 Student Leader Advisory Council!⁣ ⁣ "Barev! (It's the "hello" in Armenian) I'm 18 years old, I live in Armenia, in Arteni village in the Aragatsotn region. I'm extremely connected with my community and I'm trying to do something better for this place. I opened a debate club in my school last year. In the club we discussed many topics, like educational system, grading system, democracy, gender equality and more. Something that pushed me to start this club was "Impact Youth Club," organized by World Vision Armenia. We implemented various projects for community with community, like garden creation, library, trainings for students and more. So we mixed the skills and practiced the changes that we dreamed about. I was a speaker of TEDxKidsYerevan2017, and spoke about things that all of us do every minute of every day, but which none of us actually notice. Last year I was a speaker for Teach For Armenia, as a student I spoke about the issues of educational system and about the importance of teacher-student collaboration. Now I'm preparing for my university exams, I want to become a lawyer and am pretty excited for my career. I really enjoy being busy with productive work, I'm in love with books, music and anything connected with art. One of my main activities is volunteering. I'm volunteer with "Save the Children Armenia" and "World Vision Armenia." I’m really looking forward to participating in the Student Leader Advisory Council because I'm more than sure this project is going to support me in my future plans. The international aspect of it is exciting for me, because it will help me to see the world and the challenges and we will do our best for personal and global changes. This quote is my motivation: "Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today," and I feel that I'll grow as part of the SLAC."

Learn more about Elizabeth Ampomah, a @leadforghana student and member of our 2020 Student Leader Advisory Council.⁣ ⁣ "My name is Elizabeth Ampomah and I am a 14-year-old student studying in Lamashegu M/A Junior High School in Tamale, Ghana. I live in one of the suburbs of Tamale. I am currently in 7th grade at school and one of my favorite subjects so far is Mathematics. My ambition is to become a doctor in the future as I am very passionate about medicine and giving back to my community.⁣ ⁣ My leadership has always driven me to be involved in student committees, clubs, and community initiatives. When I enrolled in Lamashegu M/A Junior High School, I committed to be actively involved in projects that improved the quality of lives of students and the community because I believed these would lead me closer to my future ambition.⁣ ⁣ I was elected sports captain of the girls’ sports team. During the school’s recent sports competition among five schools at the Lamashegu community, our team started out very poorly with two losses. As team captain, my teammates looked up to me to improve our performances. My team and I simply did not have the size, strength and experience to compete. I took the initiative, however, to challenge my teammates and encouraged them to keep working hard. The confidence I transmitted into them inspired the team to enter subsequent games with a winning mentality. They won the following games to secure a third-place position in the competition. I believe strongly in perseverance as I think it is one of the requirements of a successful leader. Teach For All is committed to improving learning outcomes for students and I am looking forward to serving as a voice for students in underserved communities as well as learning all I can to make change in my community."

Introducing one more member of our 2020 Student Leaders Advisory Council - @ensenapormexico student Paola Parra⁣ ⁣ "My name is Paola Parra, I live in Todos Santos Baja California Sur, México. I am 15 years old and I’m in the 10th grade at The Palapa School.⁣ ⁣ Some of my hobbies consist of, movie watching and making, listening to 60s rock, reading novels as well as comic books, cooking, writing poetry, traveling and learning about different cultures.⁣ ⁣ Personality-wise, my family and friends would describe me as an extroverted, dedicated, passionate and hardworking person, in the sense that I’m a teenager with endless ambitions who firmly believes she can one day change the world she lives in by creating a healthier environment for the next generations to walk this planet.⁣ ⁣ I love my community, living in a small suburban town in Mexico is pretty cool, most people would rather live in a big city with fast food chain restaurants at every corner, but I like it here, it’s refreshing being surrounded by such caring and compassionate people.⁣ ⁣ Ever since I was a little girl, my town has been very influential in my life; experiencing so much color and culture from a young age has surely inspired me to leave my comfort zone and not to conform.⁣ ⁣ With the help of the Student Leader Advisory Council, I look forward to promoting global confidence, working across cultural differences, problem-solving and operating projects together with many other bright minds."

Get to know @teachforindia student Raghvendra Yadav today - another member of our 2020 Student Leader Advisory Council!⁣ ⁣ "I am Raghvendra from Mumbai, India. I am 16 years old and I study in 10th grade in “Gumpha Road Municipal English Secondary school”.⁣ ⁣ I come from a family where most of the people are illiterate. We migrated to Mumbai for livelihood and we took shelter in a slum area. We all work hard to arrange as basic as food for the next day.⁣ ⁣ The never-give-up attitude of my parents has been the biggest motivation for me to keep working hard. I feel that if they can do the same work for the past ten years then why can’t I do the same? This is not only about my parents but it’s about millions of parents in India who go through this and just a thought about them helps me to persevere towards my goals.⁣ ⁣ I believe that growing with underprivileged conditions was always an opportunity for me to work on diverse problems around me. Being underprivileged turned out to be a privilege since I have no other option than to work hard.⁣ ⁣ Such an environment has not only helped me to become an industrious person but has also helped me to become a person who puts a lot of effort into avoiding any kind of wastage of resources.⁣ ⁣ I want to make this world a better and more equitable place. Therefore, I have been working on diverse issues in my community since I was in the 8th grade, ranging from gender inequality to communal harmony.⁣ ⁣ But with time, I realized that our individual efforts can only make minor differences at one time. In order to do something big, we need to do collective action so I started working on fostering student leadership in my school through my project ‘Paramarsh’. Currently, we have 20 students working on seven different social projects impacting more than 400 people in the community.⁣ ⁣ I believe that to bring reforms in the education system we need to listen to the students and to work with them as equal partners and therefore I feel that SLAC is a very important initiative in that direction. SLAC can help all of us to make education more relevant as well as fun for the students."

Meet the next member of our 2020 Student Leaders Advisory Council - @ensenaperu student Johann Gonzales! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ "My name is Johann Heysemberg Gonzales Diburcio and I’m 16 years old. I’m in my last year at school in a movies and doing stonework in order to become a master craftsman.⁣ ⁣ Since I was a kid, I learnt from my parents the importance of being proud of my roots and that if you want to change your community, you must work for that change with them. Last year, a group of friends and I created a youth organization called "Los Llachags" (Those Who Know). Our main purpose is to work with young people of our community to inspire them to work on social projects and impact in their respective school, district or province.⁣ ⁣ I expect to share and learn a lot with the other students and staff of Teach For All as part of the SLAC. I strongly believe that the best way for making the world a better place is working in an ecosystem where all the genders, races, cultures and religions are listened to, and their opinions considered. Finally, with this experience I would like to inspire other young people from rural places to believe that #TogetherIsPossible."
