“My life story could never be told without Making Waves being a part of the equation. Without the educational backing and community I’ve had over the years, I wouldn’t be me. Making Waves did—and still does for us—what unfortunately the education system can’t do for many, which is provide a foundation of resources and preparation that I believe is absolutely necessary for a fruitful future.”Stella nnodim, howard university Graduate
