Avi Dietz is a writer, talker, and thinker born right here in Grand Rapids.
Avi is very passionate about her writing and always has been. She tends to write about her experiences in life. Avi is one of the only middle school students invited to The Diatribe Summer Program, but she doesn’t let that stop her.
Her dog is her best friend and always has her back.
Other than writing Avi is into eating food, hanging out with friends, and making random crafts.
She hopes that her writing will be heard and reach out to people in need.
Avi wishes you and your dog or cat a good day (or night).
The Diatribe is a nonprofit organization that uses performing art to empower young people to share their stories, raise awareness of social issues, and be active members in their community.
During the summer of 2018 we had the honor of facilitating summer programing for the first time in the history of our nonprofit organization. We had the opportunity to work with nearly 30 incredibly talented students from every corner of Kent County, but our of these 30 students we chose 5 of them to be professionally recorded at Kendall College of Art and Design in collaboration with The EPIC Project (epicsite.org).
The work crafted by these students will be shown in classrooms far and wide and will hopefully inspire other young people to share their own stories.
Each year, we will choose 5 students who have attended our programing to be recorded at Kendall and continue to expand our catalogue of student voices.
