I was very nervous about meeting new people. I was a junior at Northwest High School. I was very active while in school but, my shyness always held me back from participating in different programs.
When I first join Leap I did not know what exactly to expect. I quickly became comfortable with attending the meetings.
Mr. Richard was and still is one of the nicest persons. He really made me feel so important and valuable. I learn so much about myself.
The Leap Program encouraged me to challenge myself. I learn that if I believed in myself I could be a positive impact in my community.
Leap gave me the confidence to be anything I want to be. The Program open my eyes to look from the mountain top not to look up to the mountain. The Leap Program provided me with a 500.00 scholarship which I am still today Honored to be the first graduate to receive.
When I graduated high school in May of 2010. I knew that if I wanted to accomplish many things in life I would have to continue my higher education. I
attended Lane College in Jackson Tennessee for two years and transferred to Tennessee State University and Graduated May 2014.
Leap I made my Leap in to my future and I Thank you Mr. Richard and all supporters.
