At our Evening of Hope this year, Boys Hope Girls Hope scholar, Alejandra, talked about her struggles with homelessness before joining the program. She concluded her speech talking about how she’s applied to 16 different colleges to study business and criminal justice – what a transformation! You can watch her full, 5-minute speech here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haE9ju6IZh0.
We learned last week that she just received her first college acceptance letter from Niagra University! We have a tradition of taking our scholars’ photos with their first acceptance letters, so we thought we’d share it with you, to remind you that you had a part in getting this young woman out of homelessness and into college, and say “THANK YOU” for your generosity!
