Student Spotlight: Genesis

Student Spotlight: Genesis

The Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) student representative on the San Diego County Board of Education for April was Genesis, a 9th grader at Global Academy of California. 

Principal Roberto Carrillo said that Genesis works hard and gives it her all. 

“She always has a smile and is friendly and helpful to all,” he said. “We’re very proud of her.”

Teachers said that Genesis is positive and supportive, and is always willing to do what she needs to get ahead.

At the Board of Education meeting, Genesis shared that she has been a student in JCCS since the age of 6, attending Monarch School for several years before enrolling at Global Academy. 

“Since attending Global Academy, I became more involved in my community and part of Friday Night Live, where we’re currently working on an underage drinking project,” she said. “Seeing what’s going on in the world helps me want to make a difference.” 

Genesis plans to finish school, go to college, and become a nurse. She encourages her fellow students to never give up on their goals. 

She thanked her teachers for “encouraging her and helping her continue her education.” She also thanked her tía, who was in attendance, for being there for the good and the bad.

Each month, the San Diego County Board of Education recognizes a student from Juvenile Court and Community Schools at its regular meeting.
