"Jessica (not her real name), is my toughest coursework student. She will do everything she can to push me away. When I correct negative in-class behavior, she is quick to respond, 'You just don’t like me, miss,' or, 'I don’t want to work with you anymore.'

I have lost count of how many times Jessica has said she does not want to work with me or that she’s simply going to 'quit City Year.' And though I have been making an effort to give her a greater sense of space and freedom, I have no intention of letting her quit so easily. You see, for her and I to work will take time. We will grow together in this relationship. As of this moment, I may not know where our relationship is headed, but I do know we will never give up on her achievements in school.

And hey, she has shown me that she has conviction, assertiveness, and an ability to share her feelings – that’s a strength. Together, we will build her up so that she can also embrace the vulnerability she has shown me. [...] Each student has a story, and City Year corps members seek to understand it."
Written by @CityYearSA #AmeriCorps member, Raquella Freeman. Link to the her full @rivardreport story is in our bio!

"As a member of a low-income, single-parent, refugee family from Somalia, I beat extraordinary odds to get to college. Less than 50% of low-income students enroll in college after high school. Of those who do attend college, a vast majority drop out before completing their degree. I saw the reality of these statistics in my hometown of Seattle." Mohamed Adan, @CityYearSeattle alumnus, shares his story on our blog.

My year of service changed my life, and I know that it can sound cliché, but at 17 years old when I thought I knew so much (but didn’t) and I thought I had a plan (but didn’t) I had the opportunity for remarkable people to help me reach my potential, who encouraged me to constantly push myself, and held hold me accountable when I needed it the most.
