"I went twice in middle school and it was such an enlightening experience getting to meet people from other schools and hearing about their schools. I liked how we were all coming together in one big group to try to figure out what we could do as a community."
"I love helping the middle school students find ways to make their schools a better place to learn and grow for everyone there."
"In middle school, I attended the MS diversity conference, and it really opened my eyes and gave me perspective."
"The MS diversity conference is a really unique, exciting opportunity. I attended in eighth grade, and honestly had a life-changing experience. I left the conference with a completely different outlook and perspective on topics I had never really thought about before."
"We bring our students to this conference each year because it's a unique experience, and they love having the opportunity to engage with students from other school around topics related to diversity."
