Bottom Line Memory: Going over college applications, college tours and awesome care packages.
If I could send a care package, I’d fill it with: Hope and a flashlight. A lot of times life happens and things get a little hard and a little dark. With hope and a flashlight we can see our way through.
Why I stay involved with Bottom Line: Bottom Line is very important to me- people there have helped me to get where I am now. Before Bottom Line, I never thought of applying to a four-year college. I intended to go to a community college and then see what happened from there. Bottom Line gave me hope. I love the cause and want to support it in its mission.
People would be surprised to learn that I used to: I used to have no intentions of driving or learning how to do it.
The BEST part of being a college graduate is: I made new friends from all over the world and of different cultures. I experienced a lot of different things and gained a lot of knowledge.
Join me by supporting Bottom Line by attending volunteering opportunities!
