ELEVATION’S FEATURED SCHOLARS

Meet some future leaders

K'Andra Pope

Evans High School

K’andra is a force; smart, confident, immensely talented and equally kind. As an intern for a local radio station, she recently returned from a mission’s trip in Africa. She was afforded that opportunity when acknowledged for her beautiful artwork- a self-taught hobby she’s flourishing in. With all that talent, she aims to be an Obstetrician. The pure concern to properly care for a growing fetus and the birth mother is just warming. And it’s the same warmth she displays as her friends, teachers and family alike rely on her when in need. K’andra is the girl in the room you want to know.

Anthony Phagoo

Oakridge High School

When we talk about homelessness, we often forget the need for sanitary products for women. Anthony has not. Through his work with Empowered Youth, Anthony help lead a successful women sanitary product drive at his school – challenging the stigma surrounding women’s health. But that’s Anthony – thoughtful, considerate, and ready to help others even if the issues doesn’t directly affect him. After taking Psychology I and II, he is motivated to address mental health in his community. He is a leader that displays charisma and confidence without being boisterous. Without realizing it, Anthony makes a difference in the world around him by simply being himself.

Abigail Torres

Winter Springs High School

The youngest sister of 3, Abagail is the last in her house of 4 strong women to venture out in pursuit of the American dream. Her faith is the core of who she is and her family’s history of advocacy and service in Ecuador has inspired her to live a life facilitating change. When asked about societal need she wants to address, she shared how she’s already educating and encouraging those she can to buy “fair-trade certified products” and actively participating in teen sex trafficking prevention. She is definitely some young women who knows her purpose and is on the rise to creating much needed community impact! With an interest in business, there’s no telling how far she’ll go.
