MVS Students Host Youth Forum on Black History, Racism, and Diversity

September 9, 2020
Miami Valley School

On August 14, Georgia Sosebee and Geovany Cardona-Jones, two MVS students with a passion for making a difference, hosted a virtual learning event called “Finding Our Voices: Black History, Racism, and Diversity.” The event was presented in partnership with Tonic Dayton.

Georgia is a seventh grader at MVS who loves soccer and basketball. This summer, she launched her own small business, Georgia’s Cakes and Bakes. Georgia is passionate about antiracist awareness and education, saying, “This history is my history, and I want kids to learn more about it too.” She is the daughter of Mike Sosebee ‘98 and Jessica Sosebee.

Geovany is a fourth grader at MVS and is also the CEO of 1Love LLC, a community nonprofit that he manages with his family. Geo, the son of an immigrant father and Black mother, says he has witnessed racism firsthand and thinks kids should be able to talk and learn about this topic in more depth. He is the son of Alan Cardona and Myla Cardona-Jones.

We’re proud that these MVS students are working to be the change they want to see in the world!
