Allison Raymond, grade 12, enjoyed playing basketball with the student she was paired with. She comments on her experience at the school by saying, “I really loved getting to see the impact we made right in front of us. Seeing the joy on the kids’ faces made me so excited to start fundraising so we could give these kids a better education.”

(Above) So much work was put into publishing this book. Endless hours of writing any time and in any place all paid off when Isabella Delbakhsh received her first copy of Freedom Speaks in the mail. Publishing her own book, let alone becoming an Amazon Best Seller, was no easy feat and a remarkable achievement. Let this be an inspiration to make a difference and leave a positive mark on the world around you as well. After all, Delbakhsh is proof that people of any age can advocate for change.

This new change could add more scare zones, haunted houses, and shows for guests to enjoy. But for now, only Universal Studios lights up the night with its spooky decorations that are sure to give guests a fright before even entering.

(Above) Mr. Alley, third person in from the right, overlooks the scenic landscapes that Africa is known for alongside his family. Decked out in safari gear, the hike to the top was well worth it. When reflecting on his trip, he said, “I came. I saw. I got good shots. If I go again, I’ll get different shots, but at this point it’s like, “‘I did that.’” He wishes that he could have seen African painted dogs, but comments that, “The world is a big place.”
