“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.”

“Being the first to live new experiences, such as going to college and studying abroad, can be scary for the student and the family. However, the beauty behind my experience—which helped me overcome my challenges and fears—was that I was never alone. My family, friends, and Making Waves accompanied me through the journey.”

“My participation in Making Waves introduced me to the value of education, the gateway to most every good thing in my life. Had I not embraced education, I wouldn’t have developed the strong inclination toward knowledge and truth to explain circumstances and shape my aspirations.”
