Ryniah's College Fund
Organized by: Ann xoxo
My name is Ryniah Dumas and I am a sophomore at Shippensburg University. I am in the process of changing my major to Political Science and I plan on getting my master's degree in Health Administration right after earning my bachelor's degree. I am extremely motivated to graduate from college and be a successful, independent woman. I take five classes a semester while working and being involved on campus. Getting involved on campus and helping others is one thing that has made in college experience worth while. One extracurricular activity I am involved in is PALS: Promoting Access through Leadership at SHIP, together me and my pals recruit diverse students from urban high schools to Shippensburg University and encourage them to go to college and become successful. Another extracurricular activity I am involved in is the New Student Orientation Team. This is a very special team ,also known as the O-Team, that plans exciting and interactive activities and events for incoming students to help them adjust by making new friends and transition into college. Lastly, to come out of my shell I joined Elite Fashion Troupe which is a runway/modeling dance group. When I first joined I was a dancer and did straight runway and performed in two shows. We put on exhilarating performances for the entire to school and also compete against other schools. This semester I unfortunately will only be straight runway cause I have a lot on my plate with classes. With that being said I genuinely love being in college; although it gets overwhelming at times I am absolutely gracious to have this opportunity to make my life better for me and my family. But as we all know the price of getting a college education is overwhelmingly expensive. I do not have the liberty of having my parents pay for everything I need for school which brings me a great deal of conflict in this area. So I am asking for donations of any amount so I can continue my education, become successful and be a positive role model for my brother and sister. I will use this money to pay my tuition and buy textbooks only. Both which are extremely overpriced. This is something that I legitimately need anything given to me will be greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference to me and my education. Thank you all so much!
