For the last 4 years I've helped develop and served as the Executive Director for Give Merit. In this role, my primary goal is to further the organization's community impact.
And nothing is as fulfilling or rewarding as the interactions I have had with our students and families. I have watched twenty-two 14 and 15 year olds, grow into self-assured, courageous, and mature, almost-adults.
My dream? I want all youth to maintain unwavering confidence – confidence in themselves, their worth, their abilities, their dreams and visions, and that of their peers. With that comes great things: persisting through troubled situations, graduating high school, going to college, graduating college, pursuing passions, changing the world.
FATE, the students we work with, the City of Detroit - have all allowed me the opportunity to help bring this dream to life, chipping away at it little by little. I'm asking that you also help us achieve this dream. A donation today will help support making college a reality for these students and many students to come!
