On Monday, September 26th, Jeffrey Sanchez visited Fenway to meet with Phoenix 11th graders and discuss their capacity for enacting change. Representative Sanchez is a Democratic member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, where he currently represents the Suffolk/Norfolk districts.
Rep. Sanchez spoke about the power that our youth in Boston have, discussing the opportunities for change that is right there at their fingertips. He shared his personal story with the students: he was raised in Fenway High School’s Mission Hill neighborhood and says he had an “unconventional” journey to the State House.
He left our students with a challenge: “Try to find out what scares you, and surprise yourself.”
