Meet Daniella. She was awarded the Faces of the Future Scholarship at Raise a Hand 2018, our annual event. Daniella has attended Think Together’s Shalimar Learning Center since kindergarten. She says, “I know for a fact that I would not be where I am today if it were not for Think Together.” With your support, students like Daniella are overcoming tremendous odds. “Coming from parents who do not speak English, asking them for homework help was never an option.” Shalimar provided the necessary academic and emotional support to ensure Daniella was successful in school. And with our partnership with Wells Fargo, the College and Career Readiness Program is preparing her for the next step: attending UC Riverside this fall.
“I hope to be able to give back, whether it be by volunteering when I’m in college or after I graduate,” she says, “I hope to inspire someone else just like I was inspired at the Shalimar Learning Center.” Congratulations Daniella!
