De’Jena is a sophomore student at Animo South Los Angeles who is entering her 2nd year with the just keep livin program. Before she started attending j.k. livin, De’Jena would just go home watch T.V. and wait for her mother to get out of school. After completing her first year with the program, De’Jena has increased her water intake, developed a love for community service and became more positive. Some of her highlights include: participating in beach cleanups, renovating local houses, attending Camp Unbuntu and establishing new friendships. De’Jena’s goal for the upcoming school year is to get more of her friends involved and run a full marathon. Her aspirations after high school are to obtain an undergraduate degree in Fashion and get her Master’s in Business so she can one day launch her own clothing line.
