Why do you support Azariah?
I support Azariah because someone once took a chance on me; my sponsor barely knew me, but she recognized my need to fund my medical education. With her help, I was able to maximize my opportunities, and begin the journey towards a fulfilling career. The least I can do is pay it forward and offer another child the same opportunity I was given..
Why should others support Azariah?
It is truly an opportunity to change a life. Azariah scholars are children that have so much potential but simply lack the resources, both financial and otherwise, to break out and be truly amazing. Your contribution gives them a chance to not only transform their lives, but to make a difference in the lives of others around them.
What is your favorite high school memory?
Graduation day! I won the award for mathematics and physics after several years of struggling through senior high school. Quite honestly, it took a while for me to get my act together because I was so distracted! But in that moment, I realized how much I could accomplish if I stayed focused and committed. It truly made an impact and played a huge role in getting me set on the path towards my current career as a medical doctor.
