Destiny is a graduate of 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 worked well for me, allowing me to volunteer at my local food bank and animal shelter. My favorite subject was science. I loved the experiments and discovering how the scientific world works.

“My teachers were kind and understanding, and I was never afraid to ask for help when I struggled 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 were always willing to take the time to help their students.

I loved Connections Academy because the teachers were kind and always there for their students when they were needed the most.

“I’m very passionate about my volunteer work at local churches and animal shelters. Since I never knew when I'd be needed, Arkansas Connections Academy allowed 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.”
