Applying to college is a stressful time for anyone. But it can be especially stressful when the process is entirely unfamiliar to you.
That was the spot Tiffany Gallagos found herself in during her junior year at Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ) Promise Academy Charter Schools.
“The college application process was tough,” Tiffany recalls. “A lot of the scholars had parents who didn’t go to college. We didn’t know how it all worked.”
Fortunately, as an HCZ Promise Academy scholar, Tiffany got the support she needed to own the application process. Now a college graduate, she’s building a promising career as a licensed veterinary nurse.
We are so proud of Tiffany. She is a shining example of what happens when you connect talent with opportunity, when you connect a promising young scholar with an entire community of support.
