Get Gilbert to Yale University

My name is Gilbert Saenz, and I am the 2014-2015 Valedictorian for Donna North . I am a National Hispanic Scholar who was accepted to Yale University.

All of my life I dreamt of attending  an Ivy League University, so I gave myself fully to my academics and extracurricular activities, working hard and serving my community.  This year my dream finally came true--I was admitted to the Yale Class of 2019.

Due to my low income status and my grades, I received a full scholarship to Yale, but the scholarship does not cover my travel from South Texas to New Haven, Connecticut. My family cannot afford the expense on their own, so I am asking for contributions to help me pay for my traveling costs.

I have worked so hard and have sacrificed so much in order to achieving my dream, and any donation will truly help.

Thank you.
