LOS ANGELES — High school sports are a great avenue for growth and development — athletically, socially and emotionally. And in some cases, they help teens to do things they never thought possible, like moving to a new country.

In this week’s Scholar Athlete feature, you'll meet Ánimo South Los Angeles Charter's Chinomso Augustine, who may be far away from home, but has used sports to find his way.
