The Bridge Project would like to highlight our student Tonya this month! Tonya is a 6th grader that has been participating in Bridge for over four years. Tonya says she’s been coming to Bridge for so long because the staff and interns help her with her homework. Most recently, Tonya has fallen in love with Bridge’s Robotics program. In Robotics, Tonya has learned how to control and program a robot (her robot’s name is Rainbow). Tonya says that participating in Bridge and Robotics will help her in the future because she has learned how to resolve problems step-by-step instead of getting frustrated and giving up. Tonya hopes to go college to become a graphic designer. Congratulations on all your hard work, Tonya!

Her hard work has paid off so much that recently, Madina was moved up to attend reading class with the 2nd-3rd graders at Bridge! She has taken this new challenge and run with it. Madina is not just one of the youngest in her the class she is also one of the emerging leaders. She often helps with setting up the classroom and even leads activities for her peers! Her tutor says the biggest difference she has seen in Madina over the last year of working together is her confidence. She says her favorite part about Bridge is that it is fun and her favorite class is reading. Madina has said that she would like to grow up to be a teacher just like Ms. Jackie!
