Oprah Interviews La Follette Student
Rising 10th grader Teyara Johnson and her mother Ashley were interviewed by Oprah for her Your Life in Focus series. Teyara and Ashley discuss with Oprah how Teyara has been handling the new normal of life in quarantine and finding their voice in today's chaotic and uncertain world.
The episode is called "A Vision Forward." Teyara and Ashley eloquently address the call to action they have felt in the wake of George Floyd's death, their efforts to challenge injustice and inequality within their own family and in the Madison community as a whole, and also the importance of taking care of their emotional, social and spiritual health through it all.
