I want to be in a position where my decisions are influential, like on a city council, and to be a bridge for community members. Everything I have learned at U-M I can put to use serving communities.
I was interested in community organizing, and a friend said U-M School of Social Work was a great school, so I looked online. I didn’t know you could do so much with macro systems with an MSW, and the community-based initiatives sounded amazing.
Without my Raise Hope Scholarship, I would not have been able to attend the U-M School of Social Work. Taking out big loans was not an option for me. Scholarship donors are bridging the gap for people like me who otherwise would not have access.
