PHILADELPHIA - A Delaware County teen's vision recently came to life after getting approval from school administration to start a resource closet for students in need.
About a year ago, Aicha Coulibaly came up with an idea to start a collection of hygiene products for her classmates. Now, her idea has blossomed in to a closet packed full of various personal care items after the school board approved the teen's initiative. "Everybody deserves to have basic needs.
It's not something you should really think twice about. It's human decent," said Coulibaly. The Academy Park High School junior has spent the last year collecting items for the closet and senior, Giovanna Forte, was quick to jump onboard."We have personal care little bags, shampoos, toothpaste, and tooth brushes.
We just want people to feel comfortable coming here, like not being afraid or embarrassed because there's nothing to be embarrassed about.
