Tasia has been involved with Empower 225 for several years. In her junior year, she had chronic absenteeism, poor classroom performance, very little home support and was overage for a junior. She had every reason to quit school, but she did not. Not only did she graduate, but she also entered BRCC in fall 2018 majoring in Criminal Justice. Her first semester she received three As and is working toward a 4.0 GPA. Her dream is to go to law school and become a judge. We paid for her to complete driver’s education and she now has her own car. She attends BRCC in the morning and works part-time with Empower 225 in the afterschool program.
