I will be attending the announcement and excited to be there as I was a recipient of the
Harry Jerome Scholarship Award in high school for my academic achievements and community
I am very grateful to the BBPA for the scholarship award, because the monetary award enabled me to attend my
1st year at York University, without financial stress, and that made all the difference!
This is a full circle moment for me
Stay tuned for my blog post to come…
