My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for POINT FOUNDATION, Los Angeles, CA, USA
After eight years in the Army, the idea of leaving and starting my life again as an out trans woman was daunting to say the least. The Army was transitioning from “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, and transgender inclusion in the arm services was not even being considered as a realistic goal. At the time, I thought I was going back to school alone to gain skills for my professional transition. However, after applying to and being awarded with a Point Foundation Scholarship, I found myself with a new family of supporters and champions of me and my goals. Never had I had such an affirming and encouraging group of people cheering my every academic and professional goal. I can honestly say that I would not be where I am now without their encouragement and my mentor’s constant guidance throughout grad school and my job search. I cannot endorse Point enough for their support of me and my goals, and will forever be thankful to them for that.
