“Life is not easy, but you don’t have to let it get you down, and if it does, you stand right up. It really feels good when you get extra help to get up on your feet.”

After many years of challenges, Tania is transitioning to college. “When I came to Brookview House with my mom and two siblings I immediately got involved with their youth program and then their Girls Who Code club for two years.” Tania received a full scholarship to study STEM at Bryn Mawr College.

Addressing domestic, sexual violence in the black community

“Brookview helped me learn to communicate in English and recognized and nurtured my love of art. At first, I didn’t know how to speak English, and it was a big obstacle at school and in the community, so I needed to attend bilingual classes for two years. Now I go to regular classes; I have learned how to communicate in English very well. I joined the Teen Visionaries where I learned about domestic violence and tried photography for the first time. I also attended sculpture classes on Saturday mornings.” –Tania
