Editor's Note: By giving donors complete creative control over gifts geared towards high-need K-12 students, The Generation Project hopes to facilitate personal connection between donors and the kids they are helping. As part of that effort, we are letting some of the students that we hope to affect to use this blog to write about their lives, their schools, and anything else they find interesting. Our hope is that, by posting kids' own words, we can give you, the donor, some insight into the interests and passions of the students you would be affecting with your gifts. To highlight the kids' own words, their posts are uncensored and unedited and represent the views of the kids and adolescents that authored them, NOT The Generation Project.
Today we are introducing Jada Wright, a 14-year-old from Detroit, Michigan. Jada is our one of two "Garvy Girl" bloggers from Detroit's Marcus Garvey Academy. Read about her counterpart, Rebekah Anthony, here.
Hi everyone, my name is Jada Wright and I am one of the Garvey Girls from Marcus Garvey Academy. I am 14 years old and I love to write. Most of the things that I enjoy writing are essays, biographies, autobiographies, and my favorite; poetry. When I am writing I try to stay on one topic even though I have so much more to say. Authors of novels, biographies, and poetry really inspire me to become a better writer. I have amazing writers in my family so I guess I get it from them. Most people think that writing is boring, but I feel if you have an interesting topic, you might really enjoy it. I look forward to sharing my writings and ideas with everyone, and hopefully you will enjoy it!
