Who Is Nadia Lopez?

How This Middle School Principal Is Making a Difference Beyond Her Classroom Walls

One of the most lasting impressions you can leave on a child is encouraging them to find the strength to continue in the face of hardships. That's exactly what Nadia Lopez, founding principal of Mott Hall Bridges Academy in Brooklyn, strives to achieve with her middle school students. In addition to bringing education to kids in one of the poorest and most violent neighborhoods in New York City, Lopez works to provide social and emotional support in an effort to inspire kids to succeed beyond the classroom. Watch the video above to learn more about Lopez and her empowering mission.
