The Joyce Ivy Foundation has helped countless of young girls who lack financial support. I am proud to say that I was a 2016 Joyce Ivy Scholar. I had the privilege of attending Harvard University for their Secondary School Program for SEVEN WEEKS. Without the support Joyce Ivy gave me, this opportunity would not have been possible for me. I would love for other young women with potential to have the same chances at participating in a summer program, like the ones offered to me. I abide by Mrs. Obama's words, ?When you?ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed?. I want other young females with potential to strive and with your support this can be possible! More and more young females can now have a chance at experiencing college before high school.

Summer Scholars alumnae pay it forward in many different ways, including participating in an annual fundraiser that supports a scholarship for a current Summer Scholar.
