Recent Accomplishments

Congratulations to Cynthia Huerta from class of 2019 for placing first in this year's Bushwick Film Festival for her short documentary, "America First." The documentary serves, in part, as a call to action for the voting age to be lowered from 18 to 16. During the Q and A session after the initial screening, she credited TYWLS as being a source of her inspiration saying, "I go to an all girls school, so I'm surrounded by activism all the time."
