NEW FACES AT PROJECT RACE
New Project RACE Kids President!
Madelyn Rempel is 12 years old and the oldest of three siblings. She was born in NJ and has lived in Durham North Carolina and now resides in upstate NY with her family. Madelyn is part of a multiracial family. Her mom was born in the Dominican Republic and her dad is from Minnesota (Danish and German) “I get to discover different types of cultures because I am multiracial and I get to learn about different parts of the world through my family.”
Madelyn is an excellent student. Her favorite subject is social studies; she loves to learn about people. She loves to sing, act and dance. She recently shined in her role as Scuttle off from the Little Mermaid Junior in her 6th grade school play. Madelyn loves to help others. One of her greatest joys has been to start her own business (Helping With a Cup Cake) she bakes cupcakes and sells them to give the money to a non for profit organization to help the poor.
Madelyn wants to bring awareness to her community about being a part of a multiracial family and is excited to join the Project Race youth leadership team as president of Project RACE kids.
New Project RACE Teens Vice-President!
My name is Nadia Wooten, and I am a senior attending Klein High School located in Spring, Texas. While attending Klein High, I have been an officer in two organizations, such as Bringing Exceptional Students Together, also known as B.E.S.T. and National Honor Society; however, when I heard about Project RACE, I was extremely excited to be a part of an organization that addresses the issues and concerns of multiracial young people such as myself. Currently, I am ranked among the top 2% of my graduating class.
Although I am heavily involved in my academics, I also enjoy playing the cello, honing my skills in various disciplines of art like photography, drawing, painting, laughing, traveling, and fashion. In addition, I play tennis for recreation. Using my enjoyment of tennis and my involvement in B.E.S.T., I am currently in the process of starting a program, called Love All in the fall. This program will include basic skills clinics taught by tennis professionals to children with intellectual disabilities. My objective in starting this program is to help establish a connection with this particular population of students along with their parents with those in the community.
