My students are resilient leaders in their community despite the daily hardships that they face. Raised in a city full of hate, violence and tragedy, these students have struggled through, persevered and defeated their disadvantages. Students, who previously, had every reason to fail within a system that was set-up specifically for them to do so, rose above and are now (and always have been) thriving individuals destined for greatness and success. They deserve everything good that is in this world!
The school supplies and bedroom furniture will be given to students who will be attending college for the upcoming fall semester/quarter. These supplies will help alleviate some of the financial pressures that arise during the preparation for college.
The laptops will help to provide an educational tool that will allow students to succeed while they are off in college.
Many of these students come from disadvantaged and low-income family backgrounds and cannot otherwise afford this resource.
Receiving these items would be a blessing to my students and further help them to believe in the goodness in this world.
