Bright Horizons Bright Futures Scholarship Leela
Leela considers herself not only as an educator, but also as an innovator. She believes in strong collaboration among all of the teachers and staff at a child care center, as they are all responsible for the overall success of a student. During her time as a Summer Camp Team Member at a local athletic facility, her manager Brandon states that Leela is “a very active, sincere, and kindhearted person. When a child […] was unable to complete a task, she always encouraged and helped the individual.” Leela also found inspiration from special needs students during her time as a volunteer at the Rise School; “…I realized that this small feat was something that we all strive for – to recognize the happiness in the modest moments of everyday life. This small child, despite her disabilities, was content in this simple moment we shared.” Congratulations, Leela!
