Adeline’S CIRCLE

  • J. Tavares – Arlington, VA


Adeline grew up in a community characterized by injustice. Domestic abuse, drug addiction, and theft were rampant. As a result, Adeline committed to herself that she would one day fight for social justice!

Now, as she studies to become a lawyer in University her dream is coming true! Adeline is excited that University will help her to become a better problem solver, learn how to maintain justice, and speak on behalf of those who cannot. She also looks forward to the day where she can help improve her family’s standard of living.

In her downtime, Adeline loves to sing and empower girls! She is the leader of several choirs and active in many societies aimed at educating and transforming young people.
