Christina Edwards: Faces of TRIO
“ The Student Support Services (SSS) program has provided me with the tools and resources needed to not just get by, but to truly succeed and make all of my goals and aspirations come to life. I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for the help of mentors, advisors, and teachers that pushed me to beat the odds, not become a statistic, and be the best version of myself. I know what it's like to not have a clue on how to navigate your education, career, and life in general. TRIO made me feel more confident in my decisions and provided me with support every step of the way so I did not feel alone.
Now I am proud to say that I can take what I've learned from this great program and use my business to give back to the community, by providing hundreds of individuals throughout the United States with the right tools and resources to succeed in life as well. It's all about paying it forward and I am forever grateful that TRIO took a chance on me and granted me with the support I desperately needed.”
