I want to start a nonprofit for youth in Flint. We have so many young people in the school-to-prison pipeline, and I want to advocate against that and motivate our youth. I want Flint to become a place that people run to, not from.
I figured, if I got into the number one school of social work in the country, I’d better go through with it!
This scholarship is like an oxygen tank to get me through another semester. It has given me more air to breathe, helped my family, and helped me make the commute from Flint to Ann Arbor. This scholarship is life altering. It motivates me to want to give back some day.
