Destiny Palma is a high school student at Arkansas Connections Academy. Destiny became interested in Arkansas Connections Academy because
of the constant bullying she had to endure at her old school. She shares her story below:
“The flexible schedule at Arkansas Connections Academy works well for me, allowing me to volunteer at my local food bank and animal shelter. My
favorite subject would have to be science. I love the experiments and discovering how the scientific world works.
“My teachers are kind, understanding, and I’m never afraid to ask for help when I’m struggling with assessments. In the
other school I attended, my teachers didn’t have time to help me in the classes I was having a hard time in. With
Connections Academy®, the teachers are always willing to take the time to help their students.
I love Connections Academy because the teachers are kind and always there for their students when they are needed the
“I’m very passionate about my volunteer work at local churches and animal shelters. Since I never know when I’ll be
needed, Arkansas Connections Academy allows me to schedule my schoolwork around my volunteer work. My friends and I love to watch movies and we
usually get together every weekend to stay in touch.”
