I grew up in an area of Florida with a strong school system and worked hard enough to achieve my goal of attending an Ivy League university. But when I got to school, I was utterly lost. There were so many competitive people, work opportunities, and personal development resources that I didn't know what to do first. I got lucky: I found the right mentors, accepted work in the right jobs, and ended up in a dream job - and there's no way I could have done that without the people and an education system that cared about me in place. Let's help other students take advantage of these opportunities! Through this campaign, I'm hoping to raise $1,000: the cost of four children's attendance for a whole summer in Practice Makes Perfect's program.
My name is Tyler Shine, and this is my education story.
