COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Arcia has helped out in his neighborhood by picking up leaves, and cutting the grass. Arcia has also helped his soccer coach in a bakery.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT

“It’s important because I feel it’s the place where as a person you can identify with the others in your community.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD…

“If I could improve the world I would start by improving myself. Many people want to change people’s way of thinking. If you change yourself first, people follow you creating a domino effect. I’ve always wanted to help animals, abandoned by their owners, abused by them.”

COLLEGE OF CHOICE

Arcia has applied to the Colorado Community College (CCD) of Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU) and has been accepted to CCD.
