Hear a 9-year-old's perspective on family, summer vacation and heading back to school
The long, glorious summer is over for Michigan's kids. But the new school year does offer an opportunity for a fresh start
Today, we bring you a story of what that fresh start can look like from a kid's perspective. Leah Rice recently turned nine. Last year, she went through a difficult time with her family. Over the summer, we gave her an audio recorder. The story she tells on her own is different than the story you'd hear from the adults in her life. But Leah's story is a reminder of the importance of family, fun and the chance at a new beginning. Click above to listen.
( The Rice family was previously featured in one of the first State of Opportunity stories.)
