Homeless teens from Urban Peak youth shelter got a first look at their exhibit “Unheard Resilience” at MCA Denver, which runs through Feb. 18. Simmy Kifletsion, who moved to Denver from Strasburg in August, lives at the shelter at 2100 Stout St., where she and other teens are taking courses through a program called Pathways2Teaching with University of Colorado Denver that encourages marginalized students to become teachers. One of her classes, taught by Urban Peak educator and state Rep. Tim Hernández, had students pick an item of theirs they felt best represented who they are. They interviewed each other about the item, wrote about its significance and then designed a photo shoot with their item with the help of local photographer Anthony Maes.
