Central Queens Academy is a remarkable school that celebrates their diverse and varied scholars, staff and families who live near Elmhurst, Queens, the nation’s most diverse zip code. CQA fosters connections for their young people to feel empowered to make positive changes in their community while also helping each other learn and succeed in school. Last week, I was honored to photograph their largest annual fundraising event so that this amazing school can continue to change the lives of 400 hardworking and committed young scholars.
It was wonderful to capture these kids in their school environment and to see them engaged in their education. An amazing educational and community-oriented haven in Queens, NYC. These kids are beyond inspiring.
