My name is Manuel Ventura, and I was born in the Dominican Republic, and moved to the United States at the age of 12, I live in Brooklyn. I am a student at The International High School @ Prospect Heights. I am a member of National Honor Society, and being a member of National Honor Society, helps improve the community in and out of my school. I am also involved in many different activities at his school, such as peer tutoring and student government.
This is my first year working with Global Potential and it has been a great experience to be exposed to. In GP’s workshops, I have learned lots of things, that I thought I would never learn or even heard of. Such as how people can be powerless, poverty, racism, and also social justice. Being part of GP its just priceless and I am looking forward to keep enjoying of the great workshops I attend every Friday.Posted by Manuel
