Hi Family, Friends & Donors,
Thank you for your interest in donating!
The handsome guy you see in this picture is me in my junior year of college at The Pennsylvania State University, pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Community, Environment and Development. The joy in my face speaks to the college education I recieved, the friends I've gained, and the skills I've learned. It was an amazing experience, to say the least. My career, you ask? Even better. I work in marketing and economic development - promoting the Pittsburgh region's economic opportunities and assets for business investment. I also volunteer on the grassroots community level helping the most distressed communities advance and grow socially, culturally, & economically.
The Pittsburgh Promise has not only helped me get to where I am, monetarily. In addition, the Promise has been that small, still encouraging voice of support each year that their investment helped further my education. If it could talk it would say "I believe in you, make us proud. Show what Pittsburgh students can do!" Their undeniable confidence and investment in my potential spoke volumes in my life. I pray it does for others.
You can help that. Donate and help my friends reach their $500 goal (and beyond) and support us as we walk all across the city for One Promise!
