Grace's Path to College
In 2019, after finishing high school, Grace applied to college. Although she was not accepted at that time, this would only further motivate her to pursue her college dream. Over the past year, Grace took up a volunteer position with the Denver Zoo's Nutrition Center working with a team to feed the animals at the zoo, with the ultimate goal of becoming a zoo nutritionist. She also enrolled in a couple classes at her local community college in order to build her college readiness skills. Grace said before this year her time management was a challenge for her. "Now I don’t want to be late, I'm more organized, and I get stuff done."
