Huyuni S.

Huyuni S.

I am seventeen years old and plan to go to college next fall. At college I plan to take all my classes seriously because I want to go to medical school immediately after I get my undergraduate degree. I will be the first person in my family to go to college and I want to make my family proud of me.

Aisling M.

Aisling M.

I am a Junior in high school, and currently have a 3.4 GPA. I am taking two AP classes this year. I take a total of six classes, but my favorite is definitely English; I love reading and writing. On the most recent PSAT I took I got an 1890, and I hope to exceed 2000 on the SAT. I hope to go to a very good/competitive college and study business. I dream of working in sports management or some other type of business involving sports.

Nancy H.

I am Nancy and I am a junior this year. I think this program is a great opportunity for me to prep for the SATs and prepare for college. With this study-a-thon, I can be more prepared than ever before! I believe that I can study for the exam, get into college, and have a great career if I receive this little bit of help.

Adopt

Stephanie R.

My name is Stephanie. I enjoy playing soccer and my favorite subjects in school are science and math. Because I like them, I am trying to take as many science and math classes as I can. My future goal is to go to college to study technology and science. I will be taking the SATs in a couple of months and I really want to do well on them.

Adopt

Gilberlyn L.

My name is Gilberlyn. In school my favorite subjects are English and Spanish. I'm not sure what I want to do, but I want to be someone great so I need to do well on the SATs and get into a good college. I am a Youth Community Organizer in my community. I have been working on a project that surveys 1,000 high schools to see how people of different cultures are treated by other students and their teachers. We are also working on a project about students who get bullied.

Adopt

George R.

My name is George and I am 18. I live with my mom and 3 brothers. I want to be an engineer. I am interested in knowing how machines work, so I think I want to study mechanical engineering. No one in my family has gone to college, and I hope to be the first. I would love to get into M.I.T. but I am also looking at Boston University and Cooper Union. I have never been to New York, but I think it is somewhere I would like to live after I finish school.
