KIPP Latin Cultural Event

The Knowledge is Power Program are charter schools all throughout the country that are, in my opinion, revolutionizing the way students are educated. NY Times reporters such as Nicholas Kristof (one of my favorite journalists) have written extensively about the school and seem to agree with me.

KIPP Infinity, a school on 133rd St. had a Latin Cultural Show in light of October being Latin Heritage month. I've been wanting to visit the school for some time and my friend Julia who is a speech therapist there suggested me to the faculty to come and take pictures. As soon as I stepped in, there was an energy, a sense of possibility within each student as they prepared for the night. Each teacher was invested in their students recognizing their potential and not taking lightly the great influence they have over them.

My hope is to build a relationship with them in order to be able to document the amazing things that are going on there.

Here are some of my favorites from that night. The rest of the photos from that night can be seen here.
