Imani Pierson, Student, KIPP San Francisco Bay Academy
I’ve grown a lot over the last four years. At KIPP, I learned how to use my voice. I have a growth mindset now. Instead of saying I can’t do it, I ask questions and work through it. With each year, I’m closer to climbing the mountain to college. After high school, I plan to go to med school to become a surgeon.
