Bridgit Paula '09

Bridgit Paula returned to Wheelock with an FAO Schwarz Family Foundation Fellowship to get her master's while advising the College's SPARK the Truth program and developing art-based juvenile justice and youth advocacy programs that encourage youth to build peaceful communities.

"Knowing the connection between special needs and delinquency, I see the possibility of preventing violence through art, a perfect alternative form of expression for youth that encourages cooperation when they work together on projects."
