As you've gotten closer to graduating from high school, you've probably started dreaming about going to a great university and having the infamous college experience. Unfortunately, those dreams can seem short-lived when you come face-to-face with the reality that COLLEGE IS EXPENSIVE! If you're looking at your family's financial situation along with rising tuition costs and thinking, there's no way I could ever afford this!...well, think again
Many of your peers will end up settling for a minimal college experience, massive amounts of student loans, or no education at all. I was headed down the same path until one life-changing challenge from my mother. She believed I could go to the university of my dreams and find a way to pay for it with zero debt. She saw a future for me that was well beyond the huge obstacles confronting our family at the time. By casting a wider vision for my life, she set me on a journey I couldn't have imagined would be possible. It is a vision I want to hold out to you as not just possible but well within your reach.
I've devoted my work to every one of you who needs help finding money for college and who is dedicated to transforming your future. Maybe you feel ordinary or can't see past the circumstances you're in now, but you have extraordinary potential. My hope is to give you the encouragement and resources you need to go after all your dreams. Together, we can create a strategy that will help you stand out and achieve the success you deserve!
I'm with you in this!
