International Peace Day

A young advocate for education equality

Every day, Penn State first-year student Raven Moore makes time for a phone call with her mom. They are close—growing up, it was just the two of them. “She works 12-hour shifts, but she’s always there for me,” Raven says.

She is just a few weeks into college, but it feels more like years. The immersion in a community of friends and professors is good for the 18-year-old. She’s always thrived in learning environments where she knows her friends and peers.
