Bennett Belles Do It Well! College Fund

My name is Deja Monet Willis, a resident of the District of Columbia.  In 2013 I gradutated fifth in my class from Spingarn Senior High School. My goal is to graduate within the top five of my college class, as well.  I am currently a rising sophomore social work major at Bennett College in Greensboro, North Carolina. I understand firsthand that college can be expensive, but I also know that the experience, exposure and education you receive is invaluable.  

During my first year I faced some financial and personal obstacles; I was able to overcome everything I faced and it has now become a testimony to motivate and encourage someone else. I am more focused than ever to succeed in college. In addition, not having a balance to repay the institution lifts a burden off not only my parents, but my own shoulders as well.  I know the importance of education and expect nothing but the best for myself.

Help me achieve my goal of being debit free in the upcoming school year and the years to follow. Your donation today will ensure that I am one step closer to being debit free and reaching my ultimate educational goal of receiving my bachelors degree in social work from Bennett College, class of 2017.  Please know that no matter the size of your donation I'm truly GRATEFUL and VERY appreciative for your support.

Also, please feel to share the link with family, friends, co-workers, church members, clients, and anyone else you know.

I would just like to leave you with two quotes :

“Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today.” - Steve Maraboli

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” - Maya Angelou
