“When Avenue Scholars found me, I did not realize how big this opportunity was and how it would alter the trajectory of my life. I contribute all my success to this program, as I know without it, I would have never gone to college, adopted the mindset that led me to where I am today, or to be as happy and fulfilled as I am with my life and career.”
