RWF Teen Spotlight: Makiah Shipp, Class of 2020

My name is Makiah Shipp and I am a Senior at Detroit Edison Early College. I am wrapping up my 5th year in the Rhonda Walker Foundation and it has been nothing short of a life-changing experience. Growing up as a minority in an urban community, I didn’t have access to emotionally healthy opportunities. RWF has not only provided me with opportunities that I lacked, but it has encouraged me to pay that forward. As a student who hopes to study political trends and public policy, I have learned to be hopeful and optimistic about my capabilities as a young black woman. In an effort to extend RWF’s healthy practices, I hosted a Mental Health Workshop for youth in underserved communities. I aspire to further pursue activism and encourage a commitment to service among youth globally. In hopes of following in Rhonda’s footsteps, I plan to be the pioneer of change in communities like mine by encouraging both emotionally and physically healthy habits.
