Tia Thomas was a high school senior, excited to do all the traditions and events that came with her place in high school. That is until a global one in a generation Pandemic struck, crashing all those dreams and forcing her and all her classmates back home, isolated and afraid. But Tia… would not be denied. In this podcast, she details how a 17 year old kid ended up becoming a national news story by organizing a virtual prom and making her school’s senior year one to remember. Through her story, we learn the power of organizing, clear vision, and determination.
