Joydanze is 15 years old and lives in Mattapan. She is currently in the 9th grade at John D O’Bryant High School. She is involved with the praise team at church and is a choir director. Joydanze would like to strengthen the justice system in her school, local, or global community because there of many injustices on race, age, and/or gender. She is unique because of how artistic she is (music, drawing, dance, and acting) and is very open to trying new things.
