Hi, my name is Leslie Delgado. I'm currently a junior at KIPP NYC College Prep. Last summer, I was able to explore my love for research and environmental science. So to continue my love and curiosity of science, I applied to BELL Rhode Island which is an environmental leadership program at Brown University. For two weeks, I will be conducting labs such as testing water and air quality and learn leadership skills as an advocate for wildlife and the environment. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and I cannot wait to begin my summer. The cost of the program is $4,696. Through the program I was granted a $2,000 scholarship, but I still need to cover the rest of the expenses. Please consider donating so that I can pursue my passion of environmental science and gain new experiences at Brown University.
