“By awarding me this book scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning.  I pray that at the end of my college career, I will be able to help young women achieve their goals and achieve a level of self-respect and esteem that comes as being a mentee in the mentorship program”

“I would like to thank you for all the support that your mentoring group has provided for me. Over the past three years, I have learned so many things about caring for myself, how to network and be supportive of other girls, and overall how to be a successful businesswoman. Most importantly, I received a two year scholarship to any Florida school. College in the financial aspect was going to become a burden on me and my family. For the longest time, my family and I were unsure as to how my tuition was going to be paid. Thanks to you scholarship I am on my way to achieving my goals of majoring in Pre-Medicine and with a minor in Psychology.”
