Brave in Do The Write Thing National Competition

Fellow Brave, Yesenia Saenz, was selected as a semi-finalist for the 2018-2019 El Paso Do the Write Thing Challenge. The Challenge gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of violence on their lives and communicate in writing what they think should be done to change our culture of violence.
 
Yesenia is one of 40 semi-finalists selected from over 7,000 students who participated this year. Let's wish her luck as she is in the running for National Finalist, with a chance to represent YISD, Ysleta Middle School and El Paso in Washington, D.C.!
