Youth Spotlight: Tahira

Tahira, The Achieving Independence Center’s quiet storm, rarely lets on to what she is thinking, but when she puts her mind to something — whether it’s art, modeling, or dancing! — you very quickly see how spirited, talented, and joyful she is. Tahira, who will enter the 11th grade at Universal Audenried Charter High School, credits her first grade teacher for helping her become the awesome student that she is today.
