Hygiene items for Angela so she can continue to excel at her college classes this semester.

Posted Sep 14, 2016

Because Angela is carrying a 17 hour load of harder classes (to be a hematologist) she feels she must spend her time during the semester on her studies. She does work during breaks (Christmas, spring break, and summer) but feels she should focus on her studies during the semester. She has made A's and B's during the semesters andshe fears that if she works during the school year that she will not continue to excel at her classes.

Angela is 21 years old and lives in Winston Salem, NC

Angela is a Senior at Winston Salem State University. She wants to become a Hematologist, and is carrying a full load of classes at school (17 hours). Due to her heavy school load and the needs for her to spend time on her studies, she has not been working during the semester. (She does work on breaks from school, like at Christmas, spring break, and during the summer. TShe has been in foster care since she was 16. She and her sister are fairly close and help to support each other. Her sister has also been working on her schooling. Her sister has gotten married and had her first child in the last year or so, and has limited resources to help Angela. They both came to the US from Ghana with their father. Angela strives to be a hematologist so she can help those who, like her, have sickle cell anemia.

Angela was so excited to get this, and was stating that it came at a good time. She made A's and B's in all her classes, with only one C, for which she was very disappointed. Thanks again.
