Sandra, JKL Student
 Roosevelt HS, Washington DC

JKL student, Sandra, is a freshman at Roosevelt H.S.  Before joining the JKL program Sandra didn’t really express her emotions or feel motivated to be active. “Because of joining JKL, I now work out in the gym and feel comfortable around other participants.

A while ago, I felt really sad, almost depressed. Working out with my peers gave me so much energy and took away that sad feeling I had.” Sandra’s favorite element of the JKL program is the nutrition lessons. Although Sandra is not new to cooking, she now has the knowledge on how to make quick healthy meals for her mother.

Sandra is already thinking about her future and would like to pursue a law degree and become a lawyer. We are looking forward to spending the next 3 years watching Sandra flourish in our program!
