My name is Melissa Query and I graduated from Uniontown School. I joined the Irena Sendler Project in the 8th grade. While I was working on a History Project I learned about the Irena Sendler Project. I was moved the first time I saw the film and the performance. One person saving that many children from death had to be a special woman. She had to be a very loving and caring person, which is what I think everyone should be like. We can all learn something from this project. I also have learned that I have Polish ancestry in my background and would like to explore that.
** Melissa is now a university student and has taken a break from performing in ‘Life in a Jar.’
