I want to make sure that everyone is able to realize the same benefits of getting a college degree

Project: I want to make sure that every kid that wants to pursue a degree in higher education has the ability to do so. Many people take college for granted when it is an immense privilege that not everyone has. I want to make sure that everyone is able to realize the same benefits of getting a college degree because there is no price you can put on an education.

Inspiration: Looking back at it I realized how blessed I am to be attending college while other kids who wanted to go to college weren’t able to because of something as ridiculous as a price tag. College should be accessible to all segments of the population if they want to use it and not just given to a select few social classes. Education sees no color, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion. Education is for everyone.

Future Plans for Projects: I hope to make a real impact in allowing kids to go to college who would’ve never previously thought that college was an option for them. People that want to go to college and make use of their education should have the opportunity to do so.
