Take Stock in Children
October 9, 2009
My experience as a Take Stock and Children Scholar has been amazing. TSIC allowed me to go to college without the stresses of attaining thousands of dollars that my family and I did not have. More importantly, they provided me with a mentor that would encourage me in my efforts to succeed in life and to become an attorney. I'm glad to say that I still communicate with my mentor 10 years later (after receiving the scholarship). TSIC has also been there to help me network and find places to work in furtherance of my career goals. Without TSIC's assistance I would not currently be attending law school. I am so thankful for organizations like TSIC and not only the opportunities they have afforded me with, but also the lives of the individuals that they will continue to affect in an extremely positive way.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Many children do not have the opportunity to attend college because of their financial status. If TSIC had the money, I'm convinced that they would make a difference in the chances of a child's ability and enthusiasm to attend college.
