                                                 My name is Annabel Moua and I am a sophomore at KIPP King Collegiate. I’ve been at KIPP for
                                                 five years, first as a middle school student at KIPP Summit Academy and now as a high school

                                                 change in my future and the future of the younger generation. When I first started in fifth grade I
                                                 was not interested in anything, especially school work, but I soon found that KIPP Summit was a

                                                 school that pushed students to reach their best potential. It took some time, but I got used to the
                                                 rules and the environment at KIPP and even learned to challenge myself to think more critically
                                                 about my personal problems and homework problems.

    with high expectations and no excuses,       KIPP has impacted my life because of the other students here. They are
                                                 people I can relate to, and we have practically grown up with each other
                                                 like a family. Outside of school, life is never easy; some students have

                                                 have a better future. I truly admire them because they are able to work
                                                 hard to earn good grades. Then there are the teachers I admire for waking
                                                 up so early in the morning to get to school just to help us learn and then

                                                 I have learned important lessons at KIPP, but one that I keep with me all the

                                                 I chose to go to KIPP because it could help me get a good education and                               Above: Moua,

                                                      is the way I track speakers. I am always focused on the person who is
