The Impact of Your Gift

As an immigrant from West Africa, high schooler Nina was driven to receive a good education and make a good life in the United States. She traveled nearly an hour each week to participate in the Free Library’s College Prep Program, where she received hands-on help with studying for the SATs and perparing a scholarship essay. Nina’s hard work paid off: She was accepted into college for a pre-med program!
