“The experience that I have encountered doesn’t happen to everyone and I feel honored.”
Gratitude. Thanks. Love.
These are just a few of the words that come to mind when we think about our loyal LAMP supporters. Whether you give once a year or once a month, the generosity of our donors make more learning possible for students in New York City and beyond.
Ashley F. is just one of over 900 students who benefit from such support. Read on to learn more, in her own words, about the difference our donors make in her life every day:
What are some of the most valuable things you learned about yourself in The LAMP’s programs?
The most valuable things I learned about myself in The LAMP’s programs is the ability to be able to help other people. I always thought of myself as a social person so I never had a problem expressing my ideas. The only problem that I actually have is to send the right message. That is one of the most valuable things that I’ve learned being in the program: being able to have a message that the audiences will understand.
What changes have you noticed since getting involved with The LAMP?
A great change that I noticed since getting involved with The LAMP is being able to combine many ideas together into one big idea. It was difficult at first to be able to smash everyone’s ideas together because they had to send a clear and concise message.
What would you like to say to the people who make The LAMP and your experience possible?
I would like to say thank you for taking time to actually teach me something! The experience that I have encountered doesn’t happen to everyone and I feel honored.
