Kira is a mental health advocate who launched several initiatives aimed at promoting mental health awareness and offering resources on the topic. She founded The Power of Okay, a website filled with mental health topics including interviews with mental health professionals and wellness advice. Kira also partnered with her high school to start Operation Positivity, a program that enables students to promote mental health awareness and spread positivity throughout the school.
Kira remembers her time at The Goddard School fondly. “In addition to providing me with a lifelong love of learning, The Goddard School taught me how to show compassion and advocate for the people and things I believe in,” she says. “Reflecting on my school experience, it was The Goddard School that ignited my drive to explore new things and allow my passions to develop into various projects.”
Kira will attend Emory University in Atlanta majoring in psychology. She plans on attending graduate school for a doctorate in psychology to empower others to make a positive impact on the world — something she credits Goddard for teaching her.
We wish Kira so much luck as she follows her dreams!
