I have been part of the Fulfillment Fund since I was in 8th grade. The Fulfillment Fund paired me with Micheal, my mentor. He enriched my life with knowlegde and guidence. Before Micheal I didn't know anything about college, I had so many questions on the application process, the college environment..etc. Thankfully Micheal was there to calm my fears, and answer my questions.
After high school, I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship from the Fulfillment Fund. Coming from a low income family the scholarship helped not only myself but my family as well. A financial burden was lifted off of my shoulders because of the Fulfillment Fund.
As if that wasnt already enough, the Fulfillment also provided me with an intership position about a year ago. I got to work with Karina Santos, the Scholarship Operations Manager. Working with the Fulfillment Fund has taught me many things not only about life but about myself. About five months ago that internship position became a permanent part time postion.
Currently I am attending CSUN, and work part time with the Fulfillment Fund. I thank god everyday for organizations like the Fulfillment Fund. I can honestly say this great organization has changed my life for the better. I thank everyone who is a part of the Fulfillment Fund becuase it truly is a great organization. My mission in life is to make a diffrence in the world, and being part of the Fulfillment Fund, fulfills this mission!
Like I have stated before, the Fulfillment Fund has done so much for me. So when this fundraising opportunity came up I had to do it. Running for the Fulfillment Fund is the least I can do for this amazing organization.
