Utopia's Study Abroad in Cuba
I'm in school full time , after a year in a half I made the Dean's list with a 4.0, and I am now a Phi Theta Kappa honor student. Out of 9,000 students 649 made the Dean's list. At the Phi Theta Kappa Induction, 1 out of 2 African Americans were honored (I being 1 of them) into this society.
I have been in school full time as well as being the full time care giver of my uncle who has a terminal illness. Its been a real challenge to do everything and I hope that I can find support. I have had a hard time with the car accident in 2012 which then I lost my job and was on unemployment, but I am turning my life around to apply myself to my academic studies.
As the bible says, "If you ask you shall receive." Faith + Hope = Belief.
I am not only proud of myself but now I am inspired beyond belief. I know with dedication, sacrifice, and commitment, the world has yet to see what Utopia Hammond can do to bring fourth change and empower the next generation.
Please help me achieve what I used to think was impossible, your support would mean so much to me and would empower me.
Sincerely Your Hard Working Student & Caregiver,
