What She Faced:  Middle school grew more difficult for Amanda when she became the target of bullying. When she came to CIS, Amanda had already begun to dread attending school, and her grades and attendance had suffered.

How CIS-SA Helped:  Our Site Coordinator, Adriana, intervened and was able to stop the bullying, creating a safe environment for Amanda to learn and grow. With the focus off bullying, Amanda was able to concentrate on her studies and excel in her classes.

Where She Is Now:  Amanda has become an outgoing and confident high school student. Amanda is involved with extracurricular activities and looks forward to applying to college in the coming years.
