“The STAR Program impacted my life because I realized that my education was important to people other than my family and teachers. Society needs to encourage the importance of education just as much and even more than teachers. STAR places an emphasis on education and striving to learn beyond the classroom. I have tried my hardest to take this approach throughout my life. STAR’s direct and indirect support has given me fulfillment as a student.”
