Jessica Amaya Torres was recently named One World’s Distinguished Alumni of the Year, after graduating from Benjamin Banneker Academic High School earlier this June. As a sophomore, she won One World’s citywide public speaking competition and was featured in a Washington Post column about her experience with One World. She has left behind the same kind of legacy there as she established for herself with One Word. She has accepted a full scholarship from Johns Hopkins University and will attend in the fall. She followed up that success by winning a Gates scholarship and just this past month found out that she had won a Milken Scholarship too. Hear what Jessica thinks about her One World experience now.
