STEP 3: THEIR STORY
A teacher for over 25 years, Joan Saint-Hilaire focuses on more than just the curriculum. Whether it’s providing food to her students, keeping in contact even when classes are remote, or equipping them with school supplies they need, this local hero is committed to helping the children she teaches thrive. “I want my students to know that someone is in their corner that cares and sees the positive in them,” she says.
After learning that doctors and nurses were experiencing pain from constant mask wearing, Katie Lizana created “ear savers.” When she posted her soft straps on Instagram, requests started coming in from all over the country. She has happily fulfilled these orders — at no charge. “I was at home feeling helpless,” she explains. “These people are going to work every day putting their lives on the line... This makes me feel useful.”
Despite being new to the profession, registered nurse Demi Genao has been working through the pandemic with grace, courage, and compassion. And even after exhausting and emotionally draining 12-hour shifts, she still finds the time and energy to hand-deliver groceries to the elderly. “I nominated her because she inspires me, and I’m so proud of her,” says her mother, Josie.
When he saw people struggling in his hometown, Jarrel Strong decided to take action. Drawing on his own limited resources, he inspired friends, family, and the Miami-Dade Police Department to pitch in to provide meals to unhoused people. “With little money and a little faith, Jarrel safely fed over 3000 homeless men and women in the city of Overtown,” says his proud mom, Penny Jones, who nominated him.
