School Without Walls Senior Raising Monday For Senior Project

Like many overwhelmed seniors, who are visiting colleges and making tough decisions while finishing up their last year of high school, Kara, a resident of Cleveland Park and a senior at DC’s School Without Walls, is required to do a senior project for graduation.  Students select their own projects and mentors help them while they carry them out.  

Kara must write a research paper, and then give an oral presentation to members of the community who are familiar with the subject area.  At this joyous time of year, Kara’s choice is not joyous—instead it’s a serious subject that affects teenagers:  “Self-Harm.” 

Given the extensive research being done on this topic, teenagers experiencing problems with self-harm are better recognized now and often receive help the help they need.  However, the general public must be educated about the issue and its causes to find lasting solutions.  Through her project, Kara hopes to increase awareness about suicide and self-mutilation and their various causes, as well as educate people of all ages about these very serious problems that affect teenagers.  

To raise funds for the cause, Kara designed and produced t-shirts for sale at $12 each.  She will donate all profits from the sales to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.

If you or someone you know would like to purchase a t-shirt and support the cause, please let me know.
