Michelle Gonzales Carmona, Southern Door High School senior, colored Southern Door High School with bracelets from the Pulsera Project.
The Pulsera Project is a non-profit organization that originates in Central America. Connecting artists with United States schools give the artists a chance to make a profit for their communities and families. The goal of this organization is to “empower, educate, and connect” people of impoverished communities.
Carmona has chosen this organization to accumulate her volunteer hours for the Global Education Achievement Certificate, GEAC. The Pulsera Project shipped a few bags full of woven bracelets to Southern Door being sold for five dollars each. Southern Door students colored the hallways with these vibrant bracelets as soon as they arrived. Carmona says that she took part in this project because she “likes the cultural richness” and that it will benefit her in the future.
