Central Islip teen honored for Time magazine cover
Twyla Joseph, a senior at Central Islip High School, was honored by the Town of Islip for being featured in Time magazine.
Joseph was on the cover of the magazine that featured a story called “The Lost Year,” chronicling the struggles of virtual learning, anxiety and college selection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Time magazine was introduced to Joseph through her volunteer work with the group Make the Road Action, which advocates for justice in education, immigration and the criminal justice system.
“The story that I share is the story of many people, especially students in my community, who also had to go through this during the pandemic,” she said.
