“Zoie is a student at Fife High School. At Fife, Zoie noticed that students with intellectual disabilities were not included in the same way. When she heard about Unified Champion Schools, she did some research. This lead her to contacting Special Olympics Washington. With their support, she transformed Fife High School into a Special Olympics Unified Champion School. I am impressed by Zoie’s activism and sense of social justice. Especially at such a young age.” – Ilana Drake, UCS Correspondent (New York)
