Before I came to Northwest I was pretty shy and very intimidated to meet new people and get involved, but this place has helped me grow as a leader and pulled confidence out of me that I never knew I had.

“I read somewhere that if you smile at least once a day, it can change your overall mood and vibe. Between school and cheerleading obligations things can get pretty hectic, but I just try my best to stay focused and smile through everything. Even if I’m not having the best day, I keep a smile on my face in hopes of making someone else’s day better.”

The scholarships are very helpful, and every little bit has helped our family. I’m not sure if my daughter and I would both be able to be in the program at the same time had it not been for the Foundation scholarships we received.
