Christina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped supply the inventory and packaging needed to positively impact college-age girls through a school year subscription box filled with positive personal development messages, and awesome products chosen specifically for college girls.
I was blessed to have been raised in a loving home with two parents. Throughout my life, they tried to give me the opportunities that they never had. One of those opportunities was a college education, for which I am forever grateful. But, without instilling in me the expectation that I would do great things with that education or the positive reinforcement to pursue my dreams or find my purpose, I never believed that I could do anything special. The world was so different for them, they didn’t know how to encourage me or even understand that I was capable of so much more. Thankfully, my story was a good one. I married and was blessed with an amazing family, but I have a nagging regret about that ‘growing up’ time in my life. I was determined to instill in my own children the belief that they have the power to do anything that they set their minds to. I especially wanted my girls to believe in themselves, and to find their talents, passions and purpose. I see so many young girls who don’t understand or embrace their own potential. They are so affected by our culture and judge themselves so harshly. My dream would be for my girls, and all young girls, to expect great things of themselves, and then go out and pursue those things. I would like to help instill in them, at this critical time in their life when they are figuring out who they are, that they have wonderful gifts, a uniqueness, and a purpose. They need to feel empowered to have impossible dreams and realize their potential to make them possible.
