Tracy, City Roots, BYSN youth committee
Tracy, is a 19 year old Haitian American. She is currently a student at City Roots high school and a member of the Boston Youth Service Network's youth committee. Tracy was recommended by her program to be a member of the youth committee. Tracy had trouble in her public high school with attendance and tardy issues. She was not motivated to be in school and needed a different setting. City Roots has provided her with the help she needed in a smaller class setting and a comfortable learning environment. She still at times struggles with getting to school on time due to the commute, but has noticed a huge difference in the two schools, and now has a whole new motivation to graduate. She loves fashion, drawing, and taking care of children. When she graduates City Roots, Tracy aspires to get into Early Childhood Education and eventually own her own daycare.
