Because of organizations such as UNCF and because of HBCUs like EWC, those like me are given a chance. Growing up, I held 2 Chronicles 15:7 very close to my heart; “But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” Thanks to all of you for sowing into my future. I promise to not stop until all I want out of life is attained.
