RAW Art Works (Lynn, MA) Reel to Reel Film School student Michaela Olabisi has been awarded the Questbridge National College Match Scholarship to attend Vassar College in the fall. The scholarship, which covers her full tuition, helps low-income, first generation students get into and attend prestigious schools.
Michaela has been involved with RAW since eighth grade, and says she does not think she would be where she is today without the after-school arts organization. Through their Reel to Reel Film School, they engage students in the art of visual storytelling through the process of making a film. Michaela's film, "The Missing Element," is a film highlighting the lack of acknowledgment towards people of color in the STEM field.
