The Detroit Promise has greatly impacted my life in many aspects. First and foremost, it lifted a tremendous weight off my shoulders from having to worry about the cost of attending college. Being in such a demanding program I quickly knew I would not be able to balance work and school alone. The Detroit Promise has also given me the confidence and motivation I need to keep persevering towards my education by providing me with an amazing coach. Having a coach made me feel like I had my own personal cheerleader and someone who understands the challenges that comes with being a college student. This scholarship has ultimately given me the ability to put my dreams and education first.
