Jenny Li is a senior at Dougherty Valley High School. She has participated in PLAY events since 2017 and served as vice president last year for PLAY Art. She has had a deep passion for art ever since she was little, believing art contains unshakable power and status in society. Outside of PLAY, she has been participating in various volunteering events by herself like teaching children at school in the countryside of Guizhou, China during summer. In her free time, she enjoys painting, playing piano, dancing, voice acting, reading, learning languages, ice skating, playing volleyball, etc. Jenny is looking forward to another great year with PLAY!

Mission statement

In the past five years, they have done a lot of work, leading everyone to help the elderly and children in the community to enrich their lives through painting.  Carried out the Recycling Art project, organized and taught students in the primary school to use waste materials to make art, so that they can establish environmental awareness from an early age, and ran many exhibitions, organized 100 people on-site production, and repeatedly auctioned works for fundraising.  Demonstrated and created works at Stanford University with young people from all over the world, making used items a work of art and promoting recycled art projects.  Helping new students learn English in school to solve their difficulties... Leading everyone to raise money for cancer patients and guiding everyone to care for people around them... Their new project will combine network science and art teaching so that children from all over the world who have networks can have the opportunity to learn art. You can access our videos Here
