Friendship teachers always went above and beyond.
I grew up in Northeast Washington, D.C., and I went to Friendship Blow Pierce and then Collegiate Academy. Throughout my educational journey, Friendship teachers always went above and beyond. My only plan was to finish high school, but our teachers pushed us to apply for college. With their support, I decided to go to Bennett College for Women (on a full scholarship)!
Even once I started Bennett, Friendship teachers continued to support me – coming down to Bennett to help me settle in and sending care packages during finals week. Several Friendship teachers even attended my graduate school graduation in 2015.
Now I work within the HR department as HR Manager. I love it because I am able to meet different people and give back to the Friendship community.
