Freedom Writers Co-Author Thrills Rothesay Students

High school students giving a standing ovation for a speaker sharing her story of rising above her struggles.

Tiffony Jacobs, co-authored the Freedom Writers Diary, which is the town's Big Rothesay Read book this fall. Jacobs tells CHSJ News she wants the students to know that your past does not define who you are today.

One student getting up during the Q&A session and comparing her to Anne Frank. Jacobs says it was very humbling.

Jacobs showing clips from the 2007 feature film starring Hilary Swank that was inspired by the book. She will be speaking again tonight at Rothesay High School at 7pm today.
