Learning equals possibilities

"Being incarcerated since I was young, I have had my share of trials and struggles. But knowing every morning that I may learn something productive helps exceed all negative thinking. I can honestly say that today I'm proud of myself for the knowledge I've gained while being incarcerated. Learning equals possibilities and that's something I'm striving for beyond these gates!"

Savannah B., current WSD student
