College Bound 1st Generation Student
Organized by: Kimberly Storment
This is a fundraiser for my daughter, she is 18 yrs. old with her AA degree looking to continue her education at The University of Cincinnati in August of 2014. I am a 46 year old single mother who has raised 2 children successfully alone. I became pregnant at 17 and my father told me to get on my hands and knees so he could kick the baby out of my mouth. I left my parents home 28 years ago and I have never been back. My life has been difficult and delightful all at the same time, I would not have been able to be successful if it was not for both of my children. They have been the best thing that has ever happened to me. We started on welfare and always qualified for free lunch. I now have a good job but not good enough to pay for my daughters dreams to come true, I am heartbroken about this and determined to make it happen. I reach out to every person who reads this and can see them self in any of my story. My daughter recently made the University of Cincinnati dance team and I am so proud of her. I will volunteer at the charity organization of your choice with every $100 donated to the amazing young women's college fund. We as a family will pay this forward to the next young persons dreams. Please be kind and love one another, this will change the world.
