Alejandra, a member of the Class of 2022 at Green Bay East High School, has a pretty intense courseload. She’s taking lots of AP math and science courses, and is still deciding on a career path. She’s a violin player, and guesses that she might study “something related to music and people.”
The arts are clearly close to her heart, and she is working hard in school to achieve her dream of earning a post-secondary degree. Alejandra’s mom graduated from high school, but she says her father had to quit school to help his family. She and her siblings are all looking ahead to college, and she feels better knowing NEW Scholars is there to help.
“You know how for college you have to take student loans?,” she explains, “it’s stressful to think about paying those off.”
