Get Gilbert to Yale University

$2,095 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 36 months
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.

A throwback to one of the greatest nights of my life. Graduating top of my class and having the privilege to present the Valedictorian speech was an experience that will be forever etched in my heart.

Reading your story has shown me that you have two things that will serve you well in college and beyond: you are incredibly dedicated and you ask for help when you need it. I wish you the best.
