Nitza will teach pottery classes to girls at the WCRP. As a Puerto Rican woman raised in North Philadelphia, Nitza wants to teach pottery that includes indigenous symbols from Puerto Rico and focuses on creating pottery similar to that created by Taino women. In addition to learning how to create functional pieces, the girls will make a connection between pottery and their heritage.
