Kelley Yang is an accomplished artist and swimmer who worked with student’s of the Norfolk Emerging Leaders program to collage silhouettes of boxers for the Harbor Park boxing center in Norfolk, Virginia.
“I appreciate how art gives some wiggle room,” Yang says. “It’s not straightforward. I think there’s a huge loss of creativity in the school systems and the world in general, so I enjoy helping students be creative and finding different ways to explain things. I like the challenges the teaching profession gives a person.”
