Greenwich Students Thrive at King!
Lizzie Essaid '19: it was her (Lizzie's) experience with the Maine-based Seeds of Peace international leadership camp in the summer of 2017 that ignited the changemaker within. "I've always wanted to help people who are less fortunate," she says. During her first year at the camp, she was a member of a Palestinian-Israeli conflict dialogue group. That led to a King Talk about her camp experience. "It was really scary but also pretty awesome," she says. "It got me over my fear of talking in front of people and raising my hand in class." (Next summer, Lizzie will be one of a small group of Seeds of Peace campers invited to participate in its leadership and mediation training program, Paradigm Shift.) Read Lizzy's full feature here
