Growing up in a family with limited financial means, I was the first person to attend college. Of all my academic experiences, my HDS experience was the single most influential, developmental phase in my life; it led me to my career as an educator. But my story would not have been possible without financial aid from HDS, as it meant that my family’s financial situation did not determine my destiny.
