Meet Cultures of Dignity’s Newest Intern!
Cultures of Dignity: Tell us a little about yourself!
Micah: I am 16 years old and I am going into my sophomore year at Boulder high school. In my free time, I play soccer competitively for Boulder High and for a local club team. I also enjoy listening to good and new music and spending time with my two brothers and my friends.
Cultures of Dignity: Why are you working with Cultures of Dignity this summer?
Micah: I am working with Cultures of Dignity this summer to help other students through tough times, and improve the school climate around Boulder and for students across the country. Also, I want to gain experience and learn new ways I can offer resources to students that may need help.
Cultures of Dignity: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Micah: If I could have any superpower, I would want the ability to fly so I could be able to travel around and see the world much much faster.
Cultures of Dignity: What projects will you be working on with Cultures of Dignity?
Micah: This summer, I will primarily be working on The Guide, and the social media accounts for The Guide.
Cultures of Dignity: What is an issue you see in schools you want to fix?
Micah: One of the biggest issues in schools I want to fix is the lack of conversations about difficult subjects between people in positions of power and students. Most of the time, it is just teachers telling students how to act and what to think about certain topics rather than letting the students express how they feel. I want to fix this issue because it creates a lack of communication and prevents the necessary changes from happening in schools.
