"For me, this goes beyond charity work. This is personal. I understand and can relate to situations these children come from and I know the impact a little hope can have on their lives. My hope is that our work and the relationships we build reminds children that it doesn't matter where they come from, only where they are going."




"The Student’s Fund of Hope is about so much more than just financially supporting students to me. It’s about providing hope to families and showing students that there’s a whole community of people supporting them. It’s about showing them that they are never alone and that there’s always help. When we started SFOH, it was amazing to see how many people were eager to help but just needed the connections; many people wanted to be there for students but didn’t know how. For me, SFOH is about making those connections."
