Frida Leon German
Intern

Frida is 14 years old and has been with Mosaic since the summer of 2017 when she was nine years old, going into 5th grade. She interned at the most recent summer arts camp after attending as a camper for a while. This organization has made her so happy and eager to finally work as an employee. She has learned so much in these past few amazing years.

 

At Mosaic, she discovered dance as one of her passions, and now enjoys helping out in the class. These cultural dances help her bond with the students as they celebrate their differences together.

Frida is Mexican-American and loves to help the younger students find pride in who they are and be respectful of others for who they are.

 

Frida also loves to help these students academically since she has been in the position of having English as a second language, and wants to be a guide for children going through the same thing. She is now a Freshman at Eastside High school and is working to go to college in the future.
