Youth Leadership Award

Zaheera Fernandez

Zaheera has lived in Codman Square since she was 12 years old. She enjoys being able to walk to her school, Codman Academy, and is looking forward to graduating in June 2023.

Outside of academics, Zaheera is on the cheer team and serves as a food ambassador, where she helps plant community gardens, harvest vegetables, and make home-made items for the local farmers market. Zaheera might appear shy to those who don’t know her.  But the truth is that, below that calm aura, she is always passionately learning and growing and adapting to the world around her.  She is incredibly observant, and thoughtful, and it is clear that she genuinely cares about the people around her. 

Over her years at Codman Academy, she has taken strides to discover and develop her best self, and to prepare herself for the future she deserves.
