“As a young child my dream was to attend a prestigious school but I also knew that the odds were stacked against me because of my family background. The best alternative for me was to join the military to get an education. I believe a good quality education should not be a dream but a reality for all our children and that’s what our work at The Education Trust—West is all about.”
