I am in a better position now than I was before thanks to the great help of Long Island Scholars, keeping me on track and helping me through my college process so far, and for that I thank my educational adviser Dr. Garrett. In the beginning of my senior year, I had a plan for college, but due to my financial and immigration issues, I knew it was going to be difficult to achieve my goals, attend college, and play football. Dr. Garrett really listened to my story, and now she is assisting me by reaching out to foundations other private sources of financial aid, and advising me how to work smarter. I recommend Long Island Scholars to any hard-working high school student who is struggling to find a better life and future.
