TEDxSoleburySchool 2016: Carol Wright

Getting Past the "Why?"

Carol is a senior at Solebury School. She is a part of a two-year program called Teach2Serve whose mission is to educate and inspire high school students who want to change the world. During the first year of Teach2Serve, Carol and her cohort organized a water fair to teach the Solebury community about the negative effects of plastic water bottles on the environment, marine life and human beings. During her senior year of high school, Carol launched an online magazine called Nyota that focuses on showcasing emerging talent in the fields of music, fashion and culture. For her capstone project, Carol decided to add a segment to her magazine that showcases inspiring young adults who are making a change in their communities. The hope is that this will inspire Nyota’s readers to make positive change in their communities as well.
