My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ohlone College Foundation, Fremont, CA, USA
I would give the Ohlone Scholarship Foundation a five out of five rating due to their immense generosity and organization throughout my two years at Ohlone College. Their generous donations have given me the opportunity to attend SJSU with a scholarship. I am incredibly grateful for their generosity seeing that my mother who will be paying for two college tuitions in the fall of 2015. There has been much of this looming finical burden that has been placed on my family since my father has been unemployed and my sister and I are simultaneously attending college. Therefore the HOSTS scholarship I have received means a great deal of financial security for the education aspirations I still have yet to fulfill.
I can guarantee that their donations will create a ripple effect by impacting my own future in addition to making positive changes to our world. I will be studying Nutritional Science with an emphasis in packaging and a minor in business. My dreams are to be able to market and create packaging that can minimize the carbon footprint of our society while still being consumer friendly. With these passions I hope I will one day be able to package the food and electronic devices that will be sold to Disneyland, along with other huge companies. A true aspiration of mine would be to one day walk in Disneyland and see that my consumer and environmentally friendly packaging will be present throughout the park. However, without attending college these dreams wouldn’t have been imaginable or yet even possible. Thank you for not only donating towards my tuition at San Jose State University, but also for allowing me to imagine and one day pursue my wildest dreams.
Without this scholarship foundations I would've never found my passion in life. It was because I received a scholarship my senior year from Ohlone that I decided to go there instead of other CSUs. The one scholarship called the Ohlone Promise Scholarship allowed to continue to play volleyball and truly have the time to determine what I wanted my major to be. Due to the fact, that I didn't feel pressured like other students at a 4 yr university that have to worry about getting out swiftly in order to not accumulate an immense amount of debt. The fact that I had time to enroll in many classes and not have to worry about the cost truly allowed me to find a major I am passionate about. Without the Ohlone Scholarship Foundation I could imagine I would be $24,000 or more in debt and choosing a meaningless major. The Ohlone Scholarship Foundation had changed my life and was the mold I needed in order to shape a future for myself.
