Meet Peyton Reed. Peyton is a second year BIG student, and is a senior at Prairie High School. Last year, Peyton was on Humans of Cedar Rapids, a blog about giving a voice to the voiceless and connecting the Cedar Rapids community. This year, Peyton was apart of the Sheep Marketing project, a project marketing the newest Ambivalence Studios film Sheep.
“On Humans of Cedar Rapids, I was able to go around my community and talk to others about their lives in our community. The goal was to give a voice to the voiceless. At BIG, there’s something for everyone. BIG makes me feel very involved and it has helped me see, not only what kind of student, but what kind of person I’m becoming. I was never good at staying focused, and regular school didn’t work for me. BIG has helped me find what I’m passionate about, and they helped me learn in a way I could never imagine.”
