RISE Ursuline Academy
RISE Ursuline Academy (RISE UA) in Cincinnati, Ohio was founded by high school students Kavya Vinod and Michelle Bohman in 2019. After attending various RISE events, Kavya and Michelle were inspired to extend RISE into their own high school. RISE UA quickly grew into a chapter of passionate advocates who created a community that is excited to be supporting acid attack survivors worldwide.
