Canelise ("Kiki") lost her dad when she was very young, and now she lives with her mom and two older sisters. Since losing her dad life has been very difficult for Canelise and her family, but every time life has knocked them down they've fought back, and they are surviving. Two years ago Canelise was able to graduate high school, and this was a huge accomplishment for her given the financial sacrifice her family made to give her this opportunity. Now she dreams of continuing her education in college, and this scholarship will give her the opportunity to do just that. Canelise loves drawing and she has always had an interest in fashion, so her dream is to one day be a fashion designer.

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.
