Q: What are your hopes for your child(ren)?
A: I want Mylah to work hard, and to know that to be successful she has to go to school and do her best. I want Mylah to follow her dreams.
Q: Why do you think it is important for your child(ren) to attend a tuition-based school in Philadelphia? Are there any improvements you have seen since choosing a tuition-based school?
A: Mylah has been tuition-based since she was 3; it was the only choice for her. There is more structure, professionalism, and real care and love for the children.
Q: How does your CSFP scholarship affect your family?
A: In a great way, it’s such a tremendous help. There is comfort knowing there are programs out there that truly want to help. It is amazing.
Q: How did you feel when you were notified that you won the CSFP lottery? What was your reaction?
A: My first reaction was shock. I have been a single parent for all of Mylah’s life. It’s so hard because I don’t qualify for everything but yet, I need help. After the shock I cried tears of joy and happiness that CSFP considered me.
Q: What would you tell others about CSFP?
A: That it is an awesome organization that truly has the needs of families as a top priority. For those that may think they wouldn’t be considered step out on faith and give it a try.
