Vivian Peralta

Student President, Barringer High School

Vivian’s first years in Newark were a struggle. She and her mother moved from the Dominican Republic and Vivian was bullied at school, struggling to speak English while her mom struggled to find a job. Four years later as a senior at Barringer High School where she is ranked number one in her class, she’s also the Student President and a flourishing artist, gearing up for college.
