Mickesha lives in the rural Jamaican mountains, and she must take a total of 4 buses on a 4-hour round trip to school each day. She is very committed to her education, and she is more than willing to put in the long days necessary to continue, but the high cost of transportation has made it difficult for her family. Mickesha is a bright student, and her favorite subject is "Food and Nutrition." When she has free time she enjoys singing, dancing, and reading. She hopes one day to be a pediatrician.

Encourage this student as they embark on a journey toward finishing their education! When they log in to the Student section of our website, they'll be able to look at all of thier messages from donors and supporters alike.
It all starts with access to education. For RISING Students, this means providing whatever each student needs to return to school–tuition, uniforms, lunches, and more.
We all need the help of people who've been there before. RISING mentors care for and encourage the holistic growth of each student–mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
These are the tools students need to succeed, such as access to computers and the Internet and a local Resource Center to study, connect, and grow together.
