My Story

A senior at Oakland's Skyline High School, Diamond Broussard settled into a leadership role among her peers at a very early age. She is well on the way to becoming a leader in the community as well. Diamond has been closely involved with Girls Inc. of Alameda County since her freshman year, and is currently president of the Black Student Union and Editor-in-Chief of the student newspaper at Skyline. This 18-year-old has spearheaded many community projects. She has organized successful workshops on health and social justice topics including substance abuse among teens and the injustices of homophobia. She has organized health fairs at five Oakland public high schools and mentors younger girls through Girls Inc. She plans to attend college next year - and is awaiting admissions decisions from several universities.
