Youth Hero: Makia

The Youth Hero for March 2019 is Makia! Makia was nominated by her mother, who said:

Makia is a 14-year-old, eighth grader at World Changers School of the Arts, Inc. in Indianapolis. She is a very compassionate young lady. She has a heart for the homeless and those that are hurting. Makia is wise beyond her years. The beginning of 2018 was rocky for Makia but after spending some time at Stopover Youth Shelter, we have seen an extremely positive change in Makia’s attitude and way of life. She is a leader who wants to see the youth in her generation achieve greatness and she encourages them to do just that. Recently, she facilitated a sock drive (on her own) for the youth at Stopover. She solicited donations from family, friends and the community. She donated over 100 pair of socks.  e are so proud of Makia and hope that you will consider her a Youth Hero!
