We learn about a new Roosevelt High School student program that focuses on storytelling to build resilience. Students in “I Am M.O.R.E.” have been telling their own stories locally, and they’ve begun sharing their work in national conferences and workshops. The program received funding from the group Education First to continue the program into the next school year. We talk with the program’s founder, Roosevelt High School teacher S. Renee Mitchell, and two participants, Faiza Jama and Rose Vue.
