MINDS MATTER's Fundraiser:

Send Melissa to Harvard!

MINDS MATTER's Photo

THE STORY:

Hi! My name is Melissa, and I’m a junior in high school. I’m trying to raise money to attend Harvard’s summer program for secondary school students. 

Beginning as soon as I could read, my parents began taking me to the library every Sunday, and I’d leave with a stack of books. The library represented another world, full of dreams. 

Now, Harvard represents another world of opportunities. I want to be a cardiologist, but I still love literature. Harvard encourages  students to pursue diverse interests; I could take pre-med classes and study at its world-class English department.

I know that getting into Harvard will not be easy, and a lot will be expected of me once I’m there. The summer program will allow me to live on campus and take classes such as “Writing and Literature” and “Principles of Embryonic Development.” I’ll get to experience firsthand the difference between a seminar and a lecture class. And I’ll get to walk across the campus that I’ve always seen in pictures. 

I will be so grateful for your help.  

*Every dollar raised over $8,000 will go towards sending another student to Harvard!

$8,050
