The woman behind Seeds of Fortune

“A Posse Leadership Scholar at Babson College

on a $250,000 scholarship graduating in 2014.

I believed it was my duty to help ease the financial

burdens of those in my generation; so I created

a scholarship program to help teen girls obtain

local and national scholarships”
