I donated in support of this campaign.
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.
Just a small donation will go a long way to help Education First give scholarships and college coaching to low-income students. Through higher education, our scholars will be able to have the chance to leave generational poverty.
Education First is different. We don't target the student with the perfect GPA. Other scholarships do that. Rather, we find students who have overcome significant obstacles and are determined to make a better life for themselves and their families. Our scholars are often the first in their families to graduate from college and are setting the example for their siblings to do the same.
Personally, this organization means so much to me. So many of us, myself included, have take our education for granted at some point. There are millions of gifted students who are striving to learn and to make a better life for themselves and their families, but without the resources to do this it is nearly impossible. That's why I'm calling on your help, to change a student's life, and potentially the entire generation following that student.
Thank you for supporting my efforts,
Volunteer | EDUCATION FIRST
