“My College Possible coaches haven’t just helped me increase my ACT score and apply to colleges; they’ve made me feel confident in myself.”
Destiny is one of hundreds of college bound College Possible students across the country this year! Due to her hard work and dedication, she has already earned admission to her top three colleges.
However, college didn’t always seem like an option for Destiny. When she was a child, her father was hospitalized to receive treatment for a mental illness, leaving her mother to take care of her and her four younger brothers. While her mother tirelessly worked to support their family, Destiny took on many responsibilities at home. Seeking extra support in the college admissions process, Destiny joined College Possible.
“My College Possible coaches encouraged me to strive for my biggest dreams,” said Destiny. “They haven’t just helped me increase my ACT score and apply to colleges; they’ve made me feel confident in myself. They have inspired me to believe that I can achieve anything I want.”
Destiny continues to work hard to make her dreams of college a reality. With the help of her College Possible coach, Destiny is now applying to more colleges, completing scholarship applications and securing financial aid.
“I want to be a psychiatrist to help people with mental illness and their families. I want to be a role model for my brothers. I want to be an advocate for others, like how College Possible supported me.
“I am proud of all I have accomplished. I’m even more excited about everything I will achieve in the future.”
