Brianna to STEM:Envision @Villanova

Please Help Make Brianna’s Leadership
STEM: Envision Trip @ Villanova Happen!


My daughter, Brianna Holt, has been nominated for a phenomenal program this summer! National Youth Leadership Forum: Explore STEM is an amazing opportunity for Brianna to collaborate with like-minded peers from across the country in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math: All while discovering her potential! Although she is just 14, Brianna is certainly a leader of tomorrow—and excels at everything she does academically, musically, artistically and athletically! I am EXTREMELY proud of her and would LOVE for her to be able to attend the 6-day forum at Villanova University in Philadelphia this July. 

The tuition and travel costs are far greater than my single-parenting budget can allow, and she MUST FUNDRAISE to afford such an honor... an opportunity I could only dream about as a child.

The trip is coming up fast... and we are asking YOU, our family and friends, to please donate towards helping her create the life she envisions for herself! NO AMOUNT is TOO SMALL and is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I cannot let an opportunity like this pass her by!  Providing her with the best educational experiences today will help ensure she successfully achieves her Vision in life. Thank You in advance for your support.

And a few words from Brianna about STEM and this opportunity:

I am so ecstatic to have been nominated to go to the NYFL Program and would absolutely love to go! I would love to go because this program teaches advanced material that is not offered in my school. I would be working with like-minded people, and it would push me to work myself harder and excel at the stuff I do, even if I already push myself. I tend to challenge myself a lot and love it when I get a difficult challenge. Two of the main courses taught in the duration of time that the program runs through are math and science. Math and science are my favorite subjects in school because they are the subjects that push the students to new limits the most. I am already in advanced algebra 1, an advanced ninth grade class, and love it so much. This program would, I know, help me advance a lot and help me build my leadership skills, helping me to become more confident in my work.

Thanks in advance,

Brianna Holt
