Na’riya started By The Hand in the first grade because she was struggling in school.
Recently she began to fall behind in her classes which prompted our staff to figure out what was wrong. It was in this past year Na’riay started to fall behind due to the fact that she could not see the board and do her homework without straining her eyes. At By The Hand each of our students receive an annual eye exam. It was during this appointment that the doctor was able to identify that yes indeed Na’riya would need a pair of glasses.
It was through your generous donations that Niraya was able to receive her first pair of glasses!
Since receiving her glasses she has made the honor roll every quarter. She has been participating in Codeverse, a 3-month coding class where she was chosen to attend a board meeting to discuss what she learned. Na’riya says, “Without my glasses I wouldn’t have been able to do so well in school because I used to spend a lot of time squinting.” Na’riya is now more confident in herself and her school abilities because of your support.
