Na'shawn has been a consistent presence in our program at Dunbar High School. While working with students through Reach, Na'shawn became interested in helping professions. Currently, if you ask her about her future, she's interested in pursuing social work or psychology. She hopes to one day be a nurse practitioner, practicing in the area of mental health.
In addition to her work tutoring with Reach, Na'shawn has been part of our Summer Leadership Academy and our College Mentorship Program. In her scholarship competition essay, she wrote, "Thanks to the staff at Reach's after-school and summer programs, I am ready for the world and the challenges that will come." We know she is!
Congratulations to Na'shawn, one of six finalists for our 2019 Reach Scholarships. Stay tuned all week to meet the other finalists and learn how Reach has positively influenced their lives. Support our seniors through the #ReachTurns10 campaign by making a gift today!
