I live with my family, a rescued dog, and two cats. Animals are my number one interest and have been since I was little. I have rescued 7 other dogs and have found them homes. I have begun organizing a group at my high school to help animals in need. My goal is to become a vet one day. I hope to go to Cornell Univeristy to study Veterinary Medicine. I like to play soccer, so I hope I can play soccer at Cornell too.

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.

Matthew R.

I am Matthew. My goal is to finish college because I want to have a great life. I am hoping to study hard for the SAT and get a good score so that I can get into a good school. In school, my favorite subject is history because I like to learn about the past and I really enjoy reading about other cultures. I am a youth leader and have been working on a project surveying stores that sell tobacco products. I'm trying to get stores in my neighborhood to stop selling tabacco to minors.
