We are very pleased to announce our second passport support recipient. Mikahi McClaine is a 17 year old senior, currently attending Renaissance High School in Detroit, MI. She is very active in her school, participating in JROTC and has worked her way up to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and the Battalion Commander, all while maintaining above a 3.0 GPA.
To alleviate stress, I listen to my music and draw. I don’t listen to music specifically made here in America, I listen to music from all over the world. Granted, I don’t know a lot of languages and I always have to look up the lyrics but these songs and music videos speak real truths. These songs have actual meaning to them and are conveying a real message. I realized that’s how culture is outside of America, where they have a different scale of what is important and what isn’t. I want to visit these places and talk to the natives and learn more about their culture rather than just Googling it. Since I am a hands-on learner, it’s my goal and my dream to see more of the world outside of America.
Mikahi’s next step is to attend the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and major in Communication and/or Media Studies. Traveling has always been a dream of hers and now she will get the chance to live it out.
Congratulations Mikahi on being our Second Passport Support Recipient!
