Today we are celebrating @dropdeadbeautyy!! As a participant in BGP programs throughout high school, this brilliant, smart, and beautiful young woman was awarded a 4 year renewable scholarship through our partnership with the Alice L. Benekin Foundation. She checked into college yesterday and is off to a great start! In her words: "I'm honored to receive this two thousand dollar scholarship. Starting this fall semester of twenty seventeen, I'll be majoring in psychology and not only will this be helping me financially to prepare my future in this field and to help whoever I can when I become successful, it will also help my parents and that means the world to me. This Scholarship means a young Afro Latino woman will have the resources to be able to become successful and help other young women do the same." We are so proud of you!
