Why OWN

OWNing the Experience: Andrea Vielma, OWN Alumna

Category : News & Media

By Andrea Vielma, OneWorld Now! Alumna

I first joined OneWorld Now! the summer after my freshman year in high school, all the way back in 2009. As a brown, middle-class student in a private school, OneWorld Now! offered me a sense of belonging my educators failed to provide. I tribute my personal growth to OWN because of this. A lot of students undergo similar transformations: we start out very quiet at the beginning of the program and by the time we graduate, we find that we have grown confident and comfortable with our own voices.

This OWN Talk was delivered by alumna Michelle Moises at a OneWorld Now! event in the Spring of 2018
