I have been a dedicated member of the RICH program for 14 years. I joined the program back in Elementary School and during that time RICH really helped me develop my character and most importantly, self-confidence. Today I continue to gain strength from the 4 RICH principles, which maintains my determination. I recently graduated from Columbia University and plan to begin my career sometime in the near future. Take my advice: If you internalize each RICH principles with a deep sincerity of heart, they will forever encourage you to have hope for the future.
