Sierra's college goals

Sierra Van Rossem worked the past 3 summers (swim instructor, movie theater & Jamba Juice) but hoping to take a break this 2018 summer, right before her senior year. She's a self starter with a 4.0 GPA attending a large public high school. That said, there's a private 8-week course that will excel her SAT scores in preparation for the college admission test. In lieu of birthday/Christmas gifts, would you consider a donation to her summer course (~$2800), test/application fees and education goals?

She is one hard working 17-year-old who definitely deserves it! This direct sponsorship of a girl you personally know, would be incredibly impactful and appreciated!

To date, Sierra's activities: (She just started her high school Junior year so there's more to come!)
