I have never felt so much support. Even after high school, the staff is still here for me. I hope I can always give back to the younger scholars and help guide them as well! We are not only a huge network of professionals, but a family as well. The foundation helped me find the perfect university for me and helped me discover my path as a young adult. Without them, I wouldn’t be as successful and happy as I am today. Thanks to the Simon Family Foundation, I found myself.
