Hi Everyone, thank you for taking the time to visit my page!
This April I will be running my first marathon and I am honored to be raising money for a wonderful organization called Project Hope. The organization guides women and children out of poverty and into a life where they can be self sufficient and in control of their own destiny. Among the many wonderful programs offered, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), is near and dear to my heart. As a first generation immigrant, I am fully aware of the difficulties in overcoming the language barrier. With a little guidance and support, women are able to fully learn the English language, further their education, gain career level jobs, and secure a brighter future for their families. Any small amount will go a long way, so please don't hesitate to make a donation. It is very much appreciated!

At Project Hope we help families believe in their own possibilities and to break through the barriers that keep them poor. Our running team symbolizes the struggles of our families with their hard work, dedication and commitment to reaching the finish line. Their journey of 26.2 miles, and all the months of training leading up to it, gives us the opportunity to raise vital funds by connecting to new sources of support. Thank you for supporting our team. Your support directly impacts homeless families in Boston.
