I realized this statement can work for sharing food to sharing knowledge and talents. I am hopeful that my contribution to STEP is a way to say ‘Thank You’ to the STEP program that I participated in when I was in the seventh grade on Long Island. It was unfortunate that my program did not continue in my school district but for me to be a part of UAlbany’s STEP program for the Albany High School, one amongst other schools that UAlbany STEP Program extends its service to, is a true blessing.
The students have been my source of motivation when I have a hard time starting or continuing my own personal tasks. Many students showcase a drive to succeed and when I see that kind of enthusiasm in their age, I have hope for the future! Their hope and drive is the root of finding meaning in life. I am honored to be in the presence of students who value life through enhancing their education.
The UAlbany STEP program is nurturing students who will become leading doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers and leaders of many different fields. It has been a great experience to be a part of the STEP family. STEP has given me the energy necessary to believe in myself. The STEP program has been a foundation of inspiration to the students and this program also gives its tutors the tools necessary to make a foundation for these students. Thank You Dearly for giving me this opportunity, so that I will not spoil the gifts that only a great foundation can generate.
