BENEFITING: I Have A Dream Foundation
To me, birthdays start to lose a little bit of meaning every year. Every year, I turn a little bit older, but the number is just a number. So, this year, I decided to do a little something different. As many of you may know, I want to dedicate much of my life to education and making sure kids who didn't have it as good as I did, end up having it better. For this, I feel as though using my birthday to take a few steps ahead in this journey could really make a positive impact in the lives of students, so early in my life.
I would love if my family, friends, acquaintances, etc. could donate money in my name to the "I Have A Dream" Foundation.
The mission statement of the organization: "The "I Have A Dream" Foundation provides long-term support to help children from low-income communities achieve their full potential by promoting personal empowerment, high school graduation, postsecondary success, and financial support for postsecondary education."
Built around one of my greatest life idols, as well as the purpose I would love to see my life thrive through, this charity would definitely make the celebration of my birthday more than just a number.
