Review for Young Men and Women's African Heritage Association, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Last night during the weekly pick up of items from Panera Bread for distribution to low income families, I rushed the YMWAHA staff because I was excited to to give him a good report. I'm a 17 year old high school senior but all I kept saying was thank you, thank you, thank you so much. It took him a second to realize why I was thanking him.

A couple of months ago while waiting for the bread we struck up a conversation. The YMWAHA staff asked me what I was doing after graduation? I proudly indicated I had been accepted to Kent State University, of course he was elated for me. He asked how I planned to pay for college and I mentioned a mixture of loans, parents, work, etc. He immediately asked for my email address so he could send me information regarding available funding sources for scholarships, etc. A few months went by, that's when he showed up again at my job and I rushed over to tell him I had utilized one of the resources he'd sent and received $22,000 in scholarship for my tuition. A breakdown of the resources looks like this;

Kent State Tuition $26,000
My Scholarship $22,000
Out of pocket $4,000

The scholarship is renewed annually if I maintain a 3.0 or above; meaning over four years I will receive $88,000 in scholarship money to help cover the needed $104,000. My four year out-of-pocket costs will be $16,000, less than a full year's tuition.
My name is Cammie, this is my story and I want the world to know why YMWAHA is a great nonprofit!
