Title: “More Hope For The People”


Exhibition & Presentation Summary


My senior project is entitled “More Hope for the People.” The project’s focus is reaching out to those in need, either locally or in Haiti. I have worked with Ross Middle School students to organize activities, as well as with a non-profit youth organization in Haiti. I organized a dress down day and bake sale where I raised $1,500 in total. The money raised was used to buy useful items for Hurricane Sandy victims on Long Island. I will continue to work on this project throughout the year, as I am now in the processes of helping an organization in Haiti, BonDemen Haiti.  I have introduced the organization to the Ross School and sponsored an event on Decouverte D’Haiti Day, where I sold Haitian-made crafts.
