Meet Your Neighbor: Niara Johnson

May 19, 2017

“I came to know QCH through the Summer Youth Employment and Work, Learn & Grow programs. Through both I was able to work for a local television station. Right now I’m studying journalism at LaGuardia Community College and that’s how I came to learn about QCH’s College Access and Success Program (CASP).

“CASP helps me to stay on top of everything. They see that I’m really dedicated to furthering my education and my career, and they are helping me figure out how to pay for tuition. They have even given me the opportunity to work for them and organize the program’s wall of fame.

“CASP is a guiding force for so many people my age. They built up my confidence. I believe everybody can use some type of support to help you become the person you want to be.”
