How has HSF helped you?

HSF has helped me overcome the challenges faced by first-generation college students to ensure I walk across the stage, receiving an undergraduate degree. “A Diploma is Forever” is more than a motto, it’s just the first step as HSF Scholars go out in the world, achieve their dreams, and give back to the community that helped them become who they are today.
