Englewood and other suburbs of Denver
I recently accepted an internship as editorial intern for a group called LifeBound (www.lifebound.com). We are working on a book for highschool students that focuses on recognizing, cultivating and utilizing their gifts and talents.
I need your help. I am looking for stories about high school students who have pulled through challenges and moved on to success or who are one their way to success. I think we are looking for stories about students who have had it rough at home and made a turn-around or even people who particapated in heavy life on the streets, drugs, what have you. In any case, we are looking for students who have overcome some serious adversity, to serve as examples to other students who are 'at-risk'
Your help is greatly appreciated! The students whose stories you refer to me will possibly be featured in LifeBound's next book.
Thank you for your help, in advance.
