“My Name is Rashawn I graduated from Vertus Charter school, in the Class of 2021, I am the youngest out of my 5 siblings and the first kid in my family to graduate and go on to college.  I am currently enrolled in Robert Wesley college, My dream is to play professional basketball one day. I am looking to study nursing while at Roberts, I have grown a passion to take care of people because For the past 10 years I have assisted my uncle with care, My uncle was hurt in a car accident, and I assist him with feeding, personal care and various task he may need help with. I am currently 20,000 short for my tuition for this school year, My parents tried to assist me with the balance but was unable to get a parent loan, Not going to school would be devastating for me because I have already met my coach , my team mates and the students I will be sharing a dorm with.”
