THE STORY:

I attended the Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow program in the Bronx last year at the Y Roads site. All of what i've accomplished so far would not would not have been possible without the guidance and support from the Y roads staff.

I was born in America but grew up in Guyana, South America. After attending high school in Guyana, I moved back here and decided to further my academic career. However, none of the schools would accept my high school credits from Guyana. This was definitely a major setback, however this program gave me so much. I met amazing staff members that saw more potential in me than I ever did in myself. They all contributed to both my academic and professional growth, and for that I am very grateful.

I strongly believe that my experience at OBT has not only made me a better student, but helped me grow as an individual. I have become more brave and outgoing, I see things from a different perspective and I truly believe now, that the is the sky's the limit.

With help from the program I was able to earn my high school equivalency diploma, which was not as easy as it sounds. In addition to studying, I also got extra tutoring from my OBT instructors after classes, they have always had confidence in me, even when I doubted myself. Through the program I also was accepted into the competititve YMCA Teen Career Connection intership program.  Through the program I was able to intern at the Clinton Foundation this summer, which was an experience of a lifetime. I am now a student at Borough of Manhattan Community College where I am majoring in Business Management. 

OBT will  forever be a part of my life and words can not express how much I appreciate all that they have done for me. Please help support another student like me achieve their potential!
