Meet the Students: Linda


A choir member and volunteer in her community, Linda wants to become a nurse so she can continue to help her community. Like many people in Haiti, Linda understands the importance of obtaining an education, and the difficulties in attaining it:

"All over the world education is one of the needs the most priority and it is a need people can not neglect because it's so important in a society. Education in a country is the life of this country because without education a country can not develop and go forward then a country without education is a dead country. For me education has a lot of importance because if someone is not educated there is a lot of things he can not do and he can not know; when someone is educated he can do a lot of things and everything can be easier for him.
I know I cannot [go to nursing school] by myself but with this project Haiti Scholarships I can do whatever project I would like to realize... Helping a country with education is something everybody in that country has to give a lot of importance. Education is the base of development, without educated people a country can not go forward."

Will you help Linda?
