For most of us, life slowed down after the coronavirus hit. But some of us were called to action. These are the stories of those who stepped up when their communities were down. Jazmin Hooks is the Center Director for Higher Achievement, a non-profit that helps middle schoolers stay on track for success. The quarantine prevented her from physically supporting her students — but she didn't let it stop her from making a positive impact in their lives. See her story, and more stories of people like Jazmin, below.
