I heard about GapBuster in the sixth grade. GapBuster taught me to become
a leader and change agent inside and outside the classroom. I heard about
gap buster because Dr. Butler is a close family friend. I have been a part of
GapBuster since the sixth grade. Gap buster has transformed my life by
molding me into the young leader I am today. I learned about HIV/AIDS
awareness and how to serve as a younger ambassador through their
young ambassadors program. Not only that but I was able to apply what I learned in a completely different continent, South Africa. While I was in the seventh grade, I also served as an HIV/AIDS Peer educator in various educational institutions. What I can do to contribute to GapBuster now is to always go back and continue to serve my community and give them the same
opportunities that GapBuster provided for me. Currently, I am a sophomore at Towson University majoring in biology with a minor in Mandarin Chinese. I have started a LULAC council and recently became a member of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, incorporated. I have become more involved with my academic by seeking research opportunities. I am proud to say that I will be working at the NIH over winter break and summer. Thanks to GapBuster, I know how to approach certain situations and how to make the most of it. I am eternally grateful for Dr. Butler and her staff because without them I wouldn’t be the ambitious young lady I am today. Thank you GapBuster!
