When I was applying to different colleges and universities, I did not know of the many scholarships (locally and nationally) to apply for. I was not given a scholarship newsletter, there were no class meetings held, and no college readiness sessions were conducted. After being in college admissions for ten years, I took it upon myself to educate as many first- generation students about the college process. I definitely wanted to do more, so I established The Finkley Experience Scholarship to assist with educational cost.
