Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program
February 25, 2011
Women of Tomorrow gave a $2,500 scholarship towards my first year of college at my university. I never really thought about the magnitude of expenses that i would have to pay while attending college for the first time. the money was just an overwhelming gift to receive, this aside from financial was primary assistance. if i had not got the scholarship for Miami International University from Women of Tomorrow, i really would not have been able to attend. In my second semester i created a garment out of chocolate wrappers and one third place, many people at my school were amazed because i won so early in my year. If women of Tomorrow had not helped me, i would not be in my fashion degree major for my bachelor's degree. Women of Tomorrow really changed my life during high school, one of the most memorable moments was when we were receiving etiquette courses. We then went to the Mandarin Oriental hotel, where we saw luxury that the girls may have never have another opportunity to experience. i myself was heavily impacted, aside from the luxury I had sushi for the first time (well I attempted I couldn't pick it up). There was a great message that opened my eyes , the program was not telling us the get rich and live luxurious. Rather they were opening our eyes to show us what is around us, we gave have luxury or prosper in science or be the first women to accomplish something great. they were showing girls the world in a way they may not have seen, i'm a middle class citizen and we have finances to meet our needs but tis mot a luxury. i have seen both ends of having little and a lot. If i had not been in this program i wouldn't have realized so much of the doors i could walk into for my future.

The Women of Tomorrow Mentorship and Scholarship program really allowed me to see the big picture of all that i can do with my life by making as many wise and responsible choices as possible. While continuing to grow and mature as responsible young lady, and women of tomorrow gave us a variety of women from all backgrounds and lifestyles to be the models we could see to know that its attainable.
