HMR HMONG MN RADIO
November 26, 2012

This is a review on behalf of my parents. They listen to this station all day, everyday. They do not speak English very well so they get their news from this radio station. They cover a range of things from News story headlines, health issues facing the Hmong community, political awareness, and of course play Hmong music; both traditional to new music. It started that my parents would annoy me by blasting this station throughout the house but now, I've come to like it and listen to it too. Some translations could be better, some things to get lost in translation but for the most part, it's informative and fun.

CENTER FOR HMONG ARTS & TALENT
November 26, 2012

I have not had direct involvement with this organization but I have attended and seen the work they do. I also know many people who have taken advantage of the services at this organization. This organization really does impact the lives of Hmong youth. There really isn't an outlet for Hmong youth to express their creative side in an environment that understands their situation. CHAT provides the space for this.

Black Hawk Habitat for Humanity, Greater
October 23, 2012

This was an amazing organization to volunteer for. Habitat for Humanity in general is great but I had the opportunity to volunteer in Waterloo. I came to Waterloo with a school service trip during my spring break and loved it! They provided lunch and lodging for the week and we were able to meet the staff there. They also organized for us to go watch a hockey game. The contractors were very patient with our group of novice home-builders- some of us have never hammered a nail before but by the end of the week, we were power saw masters. The people we met and worked with were just so grateful, it made hammering in light rain and standing all day so much better. The best part had to be seeing the progress on the house after just a week.

College Possible
October 23, 2012

I always knew that I would go to college. My parents were refugees and never had formal American education so they always encouraged me and my siblings to pursue our education. I was also very studious and did well in school. So if I didn't have College Possible, I'm sure I would have still made it into a college somewhere. The difference that College Possible made on me is opening my eyes to all the options that were available to me. Though I did well in my classes, the ACT was a different story. I was so disappointed when I saw my score the first time I took the practice ACT. Through ACT prep and practice tests I was able to raise my composite score 6 points and well over the national average. My parents would have never been able to afford ACT prep for me. In terms of college search, without the push of my coaches in College Possible, I would have been content commuting to a public university near home. Instead I graduated from a private selective college where I was far enough that I had to live on campus. College became an experience rather than just a school I attended. College Possible steered me to a direction I never even knew was available. This organization has impacted me so much, I chose to give back by becoming a Corps member serving for College Possible. I now see a different perspective of this organization and I still think it's an amazing non-profit! The more I learn of College Possible, I become more and more proud of it.
