Keren is a junior in high school who has experienced more in her 16 years than most will experience in their life. When first entering high school, she was a quiet, introverted student who did what she needed to in order to be successful but didn't really engage with others, both peers and staff members. As the daughter of immigrants, Keren shares her struggles with connecting with others as well as balancing the responsibilities at home. She discusses the difficulties of overcoming substance abuse, as well as the unfortunate passing of her father, and how writing and opening up to others has really helped drive her to find her purpose in life. Keren now wants to become a social worker to help those who experience similar situations to hers.
