Brianna, JKL Student
Animo Inglewood Charter High School, Inglewood, CA

We had the pleasure of checking in with our senior jkl student Brianna from Animo Inglewood Charter High School.

What new skills or goals did you accomplish this summer? I didn’t gain any new skills but I did conquer a fear of mine. This past summer I conquered my fear of being on a boat in the ocean. Our jkl summer program took us on a trip to the Catalina Island, which was a blast! 

What goals do you have for this upcoming school year? Be more outgoing and keep a positive mindset through the school year. I also would like to try out for the basketball team this year.  

What are you looking forward to from the jkl program this year? Community service activities surrounding animals. Last year we went to an animal shelter and the experience was super fun and I loved visiting and caring for the animals. 

Current favorite healthy meal? a basic salad full of broccoli and kale with a light dressing. 

Tell me about your plans after you graduate from High School. I would love to attend UCLA and focus on pursuing a career in the nursing field and eventually becoming a Midwife.  

What are you grateful for today? I am grateful for another day on Earth.
