Just this simple act of kindness has paved my way to graduation. This kind of reward means so much to me. I was truly moved finding out I was accepted and that you helped fund my education. This is my first ever scholarship and I am very proud of myself because I have overcome obstacles with my school and work life… finding out I received this fantastic award takes so much stress away. Not only does Social justice mean a lot to me, I aim to works towards a transformative justice approach, and you have helped me fund that opportunity.
