Kristen B

The support from a donor has allowed me to continue working hard as an Education major in many different aspects. Not only was I able to pay for all of my licensure tests, but it also allowed me to participate in a life-changing program during the summer going into my senior year at OHIO. Before the support, I had no choice but to spend my summers working as a waitress in order to finance the following school year.After support from the donor, I was able to participate as a teaching fellow for a non-profit program that works with middle school students from economically disadvantaged communities over the summer. That experience helped me grow so much as an educator and verified my passion for teaching in a low-income school after graduation.
