Meet Myra- Scholarships for Students

Meet Myra. Her father died on Christmas day when she was only 12 years old. At age 13, her mother, stricken with grief, decided to move to the United States, leaving her children behind. After moving in with her brother, she found herself alone at 14 when he was killed.

For Myra, receiving a scholarship to continue her education was everything. Without it, she would have had to find work in order to pay for school, which would have been extremely difficult. For her, being able to study meant being able to eventually have a career in which she could return what she was given: help. The scholarship was a hand up for her, not a hand out. It was an investment into her future.

Now, Myra is 18. She receives good grades in school and is looking to continue her studies at the university. She was given a chance to piece together her fragmented life through her education.
