We will share a new poem every 5th day this month. Cited by our Board of Advisor member Gustavo Carvajal “we provide this marvelous opportunity to celebrate the expressiveness, delight, and pure charm of poetry. It is a special occasion that reminds us of the integral role of poets and poetry in our cultures."

In Memoriam - Kenya Smith

February 6, 2022

This past week, Kenya Smith (22) died due to a hit-and-run.

Kenya was one of the 7 students who participated in our 2017 pilot Summer Program, which took place at the Bronx Engineering & Technology Academy (BETA) at the JFK campus in the Bronx, NY.  Kenya returned to our summer program as a judge and a role model for our 2018 STEAM learners.

Kenya once told me: “Dr. C, you smile with your eyes”. Kenya did not want to speak in public and did not want to be social but every time I put her up for another “social” challenge she took the challenge and came out stronger. She was a beautiful young woman and I am thankful that I got to know her.
