"I attend a private Christian school that I wouldn’t be able to attend without help from scholarships, so LMG helped to make my college experience possible. I also loved the mentorship aspect - that is so incredibly needed today (especially for college students) so I’m so grateful for Chiquta and the way that she poured into me all through my freshman year."
