Alumni Spotlights

Leila Adams '12 | Taking Action, Getting Results

Seeing Epiphany School through the eyes of returning alumni is always uplifting and refreshing. And it was no different with Leila Adams, '12, who was clearly thrilled to walk the campus, reconnect with former teachers, and ponder the role Epiphany played in turning her into an active, involved Garfield High School 10th grader.

This is a young woman who is passionate about taking action to make social change. And that's why fifteen-year-old Leila is on the Seattle Youth Commission, is a member of of Garfield's Black Student Union, does community outreach through her church and school, went on a seven-week service trip to Ethiopia with the International Leadership Academy of Ethiopia over the summer, and has added YouthCare's youth programs to her long list of volunteer activities.

Emma Gilshannon '10 | Making Music and Making a Difference

When Emma Gilshannon '10 moved with her family from Seattle to the East Coast, she had no idea that a choir started in the basement of a New Haven, Connecticut, home and an orphaned toddler in Haiti would capture her heart and commit her to "making a difference in the lives of impoverished children" through her love of music.

Moving to New England was a big adjustment for Emma, who was in 8th grade at the time. To help with that change, it was natural for her to seek out and join a choir. "I'd been a member of The Seattle Girls' Choir for what seemed like my whole life," says Emma, a seven-year SGC veteran. "Joining SOUND Affect helped me fall in love with music again."
