Leandru's College Fund
Organized by: Leandru Edwards
My name is Leandru Edwards. I am twenty years of age, and I am from the small island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, located in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. St. Vincent is quite underdeveloped in various areas that are critical for its citizens' well-being and much-needed job opportunities. My island severely lacks in quality accredited universities and colleges for me to further my education with the hopes of landing a well-paying job. My goal is to study either in the United States or Germany because there is a wide variety of accredited colleges and universities. Also, in the States and Germany, there are many internship programs available to students upon the completion of their studies, to help cement their knowledge in practical applications. These internship programs would afford me the chance to obtain work experience. Being equipped with and education and valuable work experience, it will allow me to secure a well-paying job that will help me to contribute to my family and my country's creative infrastructure for global opportunities.
