“Being one of the first in my family to have the opportunity to go to college seemed like a dream, but my teaching fellows at Breakthrough taught me that it could be a reality. I’ve obtained scholarships, honors, and was even the Valedictorian of my high school and that was largely due to my Breakthrough experience.”
