She Is Achieving.

Nominated as an “outstanding elementary school student,” Skyler Foster is being considered to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM this summer by her teacher at her school, Westward Elementary in West Palm Beach. The summer program will take place in Miami and is scheduled to teach science, technology, engineering, mathematics–and leadership skills.

“I can’t afford it, but this will benefit her,” said Tyler Lawrence, 31, who is Skyler’s mother—and who had had three children by the time she was 26 but still graduated from FAMU in 2013.”She’s smart.” 

The 8-year-old third grader was nominated to attend the forum by her teacher, who said she is creative, bright and promising. Her mother, who works as a Family Services Specialist at the Early Learning Coalition in Riviera Beach, is also a single parent with three children who are all smart, fun and hardworking.
