Commons Good Podcast: Maya Bhola, All-America City John Parr Youth Award Winner
In this episode we’re talking with Maya Bhola, All-America John Parr Youth Award winner out of the city of Miramar, Florida. This award recognizes extraordinary civic engagement and leadership on the part of a young person in their community. Maya is the Founder of “Let’s Picture It”, an inclusive mental health group that allows community members to openly discuss emotions and life challenges. As part of the group discussions they create illustrations that reflect their feelings and help share their stories.
Maya sees the need to create places where we can come together and understands that the choices we make today -- around ocean clean-up, new builds, and green spaces -- will become the starting point for future generations.
