Furthermore, Ava is a founding member of her school’s first-ever Student Diversity and Inclusion Council, in which she brings forth and resolves issues with administration. Outside of the classroom, Ava expands her passion for mental health through volunteering at summer camps devoted to those with physical/mental disabilities. She has additionally worked with a nonprofit, LuvMichael, as a social media advocate for people with autism. In her free time, Ava likes to connect to her Caribbean heritage with stilt-walking lessons as both a performer and a leader to the next generation.
