Nathaly Rodriguez, RICH Graduate

The RICH program has helped me a lot all throughout the year that I’ve been here and I hope it will do the same to others in the future. For example, when I first entered the doors of the RICH program, I was shy and very nervous for a reason that I can’t explain. However, as it’s the end of the year of the RICH program, I am very sad and feel like crying because I may not see Kayla and Dr. Dawson ever again. Although Imani has a Youtube channel, it won’t be the same as seeing them in person. But because of my wonderful mentors, I’m proud to say that I’m no longer shy and nervous around others. I’ll truly and deeply miss the RICH program and it’s ways in teaching me on how I matter.
