“New Futures reaches out to people who aren’t as privileged to give them career and academic opportunities so they can achieve their goals. New Futures isn’t just a scholarship; it’s mentorship and family. Especially for me, a 1st-generation college student, that guidance is very important. If I didn’t have someone by my side, my college experience would be much more difficult. From the beginning, ’ve felt welcomed here; I felt like everyone was genuinely interested in my career goals and in who I am as a person.”
