"In high school, you face a lot of problems. Pace, for me, was a place to express my feelings and talk more."

Sakiyah will attend Georgia Southern University in the fall and is the first person in her family to graduate high school and attend a four-year college. She believes the biggest challenge facing high school girls in her community is an inordinate amount of anxiety and stress — much of it centered on “graduating high school and doing well without a lot of support outside of school.”

Meet Sakiyah and hear her inspiring story reported by 13WMAZ in Macon, Georgia.
