Cascade Heights native Kwanza Fisher—one of President Obama's 2011 Champions of Change Youth Entrepreneurs—will begin blogging for Cascade Patch later this month.
Fisher, who speaks Mandarin Chinese and has a B. A. in East Asian Studies from Wellesley College, will blog on many topics but she is an expert on urban education and the achievement gap.
A 2005 graduate of North Atlanta High School, Fisher is already an established community organizer and founder of Neighborhood Mathematica, a math education initiative for youth in the Atlanta area.
