Shemira Peoples' Fundraiser:

Make Shemira's Dreams a Reality

Shemira Peoples


My name is Shemira Peoples. Please help me achieve my goal of becoming the first college graduate in my family with a Bachelor of Science in nursing.

Would you please consider making an investment in my future today, by making a contribution of any amount that you can afford that will help me close the $17,000 funding shortage that I must fill before I register for classes at La Sierra University in two weeks.

I am a participant in the Rotary Club of San Francisco Scholarship Program. I have been a participant of this program for the past six years. This program has inspired me to reach my goals in life through various activities such as Rotary's Interact Leadership Program, the Rotary International's Polio Walk-a-thon and building bikes for the needy. I have already started giving back to my community through participation in internships. Through my church, I have participated in community outreach in the San Francisco Bayview, as well as fed the homeless in the Bayview's Martin Luther King Park. I also did charitable events at Jelani's House and the San Francisco General Hospital Children's Ward, which reaffirmed my desire to pursue a career in nursing.

This fall, I will be attending La Sierra University in Riverside, CA, to pursue my BS in nursing. I graduated with honors from Bridgemont High School this past June. By attending La Sierra University, I believe I will be able to stay on track for numerous reasons. La Sierra offers an ideal environment for me to thirve and succeed. For starters, I want to stay in California, but I look forward to experiencing a different part of the state. What appeals to me most is that I can pursue my nursing BS and be involved with all the extracurricular activities they have to offer to help me fulfill my degree.

Financial support will allow my dreams and aspirations to become a reality.
