"I cannot speak enough of the unbelievable generosity of the donors that made my dream of a rewarding educational experience become a reality. Their assistance provided me with the support I needed to concentrate on my studies and fulfill my goals. Throughout the course of my time in the CUNY BA program, I was awarded the Thomas W. Smith Academic Fellowship, the CUNY Baccalaureate Alumni Fund Award, and the Leslie F. Hughes Health Sciences Award. The kindness of these incredible donors made a profound difference in my academic career and inspires me to pay it forward in the future to help the students of tomorrow pursue their dreams. Giving to this amazing program would help provide priceless opportunities to future students. The greatest gift in life is to reach out and help those around you and I look toward the future with a full heart and infinite gratitude."

Amanda is currently  pursuing a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Dominican College.
