PLEASE READ this touching message from SHAGHAYEGH…


“Frankly, I do not know how I would become who I am today without your generous help. Two summers ago, I was homeless and with your generous helps I have become a competitive, young, global scholar. I do not know how to thank you, but I really want you to know that if it was not for you, I would most likely be a high school student who did not plan for her future, rather worried about it. You have shown me that in this strange land I do have someone who has my back and encouraging me to be a better version of me and caring for me like a family. Thanks for making my dreams a reality and I promise to meet and exceed your expectations.
Best & Love. Shaghayegh.”
