Seven-year-old “Shoua” began at Bayview FoundationChildren at Bayview‘s summer and after-school program as shy, rarely speaking in English to staff or her peers, and nervous about biking to the pool.  By the end of the summer—after many days of biking to the pool and swimming with a new group of culturally diverse friends, and taking part in cooking, art, and music activities—she emerged a one of our most enthusiastic participants. She had become a leader within her peer group, an emerging artist, and engaged student of world cultures!
