I initially returned to Oregon State University to further my education, expand my career opportunities, and provide a better life for my children following ten years of service in the fields of child development and maternal health. While pursuing my academic goals I earned several scholarships and awards, served the university through membership in advisory boards, and performed leadership roles in social justice organizations including the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance. I have exceeded academic expectations despite socioeconomic barriers and a lack of social support systems and I anticipate continued success throughout my career at the University of Kansas.
The items listed in my wish list are solely for travel, but I would gladly welcome additional support because we are currently behind in all bills including car insurance, electricity, water, phone, and garbage because my financial aid has ended for the year and I will not receive additional funding until late August or early September.
Thank you for you support and generosity.
