Students from Blossom Hill Fellow George Batah‘s college coaching program are aiming high and achieving their wildest dreams!
Congratulations to Rose on her recent acceptance and scholarship from Princeton University where she hopes to major in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. In her free time, Rose plays guitar, piano, and ukulele. She started her own mental healthcare initiative and completed an independent research project. She also hosts a virtual book club, and volunteers regularly.
Congratulations to Ahmed, a student at Haverford College, on his amazing work using tech to support refugees. Inspired by his harrowing experience as a Syrian refugee, he led a team that came up with a web app designed to help refugees integrate into their new communities and build new lives for themselves and their families. “Lighthouse,” as they called it, won the award for Best Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Hack, one of 10 awards issued at the Comcast-sponsored event held at the 10th Annual Philly Codefest in Drexel University.
