|Three cheers for YC writer Meagan Zullo!
Her story “Not Just a Kid From the Projects” was published by The Nation. And the Black News Channel interviewed her about her motivation for writing it. Meagan developed her powerful story with our editors in the writing program at Youth Communication.
Meagan’s story illustrates how economic inequality impacts her self-worth. She describes overcoming stereotypes and insecurities when she moved from a school “where the computers were old and constantly broken” to a middle school that had “newer books, smaller classes, and better technology.”
