“If I can go back in time and tell my 9-year old self that we’re only two years away from becoming a doctor, she would not have believed me.
She would have said, ‘Becoming a doctor is a distant dream for poor girls like us.’ To this, I would reply, ‘It is if you’re alone, but it is possible with the help of the right people.’
15 years after I became a scholar, Hungry Minds is still supporting me in my dream of becoming a doctor. They have been with me through the ups and downs of my life. They did not give up on me when things got tough. I cannot imagine what my life would have been without Food for Hungry Minds.”
