Meet Armani Smith-Gibbs.  Armani is a 1st year BIG student, and comes from Kennedy High School.  Although Armani is technically a Kennedy student, she doesn’t have any classes at Kennedy.  Armani gets all of her credit from the combination of BIG and online classes.

“I am on projects I couldn’t have ever believed I’d be interested in. I was a part of a project dealing with politics, which is suited towards my interests. I want to go to law school, and the project is helping me learn things to get there. I’m also very passionate about youth empowerment, and helping people in the community. I’m a hands on learner, and BIG has really helped me. I’ve learned so much in my few months I’ve been here. At normal school, you learn basic knowledge. At BIG, you learn that and so much more.”

Armani will be taking over the Iowa BIG Instagram and Facebook story on Tuesday January 22nd for #TakeoverTuesday to show you a day in the life of a BIG student. This coming Tuesday, Angelina Papakee will be taking over the story.
